Introduction

Characters may wield weapons to attack enemies. Weapons may be divided into ranged and melee weapons. Occasionally, they may possess a brand or be an artefact.

Weapon attributes

The following is a table of all weapons in Crawl, aside from ammunition. Below is a short explanation of each field.

Name The name of the item as it appears in Crawl.
Damage The base amount of damage the weapon does, before various bonuses and adjustments.
Hit To hit modifier for the weapon, before any other adjustments.
Speed This is actually the attack delay, which is multiplied by 10 to get the "percentages" you see in-game. (That is, attack delay 10 shows as 100%.) Every 2 levels of weapon skill lowers the delay by 1 unit. A weapon's minimum delay is half of its base delay (rounded down) or 7 (5 for cutlass), whichever is lower. Speed brand cuts delay by half (round up), and haste cuts delay by a third (round randomly up or down). These effects stack, after the base cap, but there's an absolute cap of 2 for attack delay.
Mass How heavy a weapon is. Note that this is used for game calculations and is not the same as the weight as it appears in your inventory.
Str weight A bigger strength weighting is better for strong characters, while a low strength weighting is better for dexterous characters.
Skill What skill is trained when using this weapon.
Hands How many hands are required to use the weapon. (Using a shield means using your weapon one-handed.) All ranged weapons except slings and blowguns suffer speed penalties when used with a shield.
Size The size of the weapon. Large creatures can wield larger weapons, while small creatures are restricted in what sizes they can use. The order is little, small, medium, large, big.
Missile If the weapon uses a missile, what type does it need?
Throw Can you throw it?
Dam Type What category of damage does the weapon deal?
Prob A larger number indicates higher probability of acquiring through scrolls of acquirement.

Notes for ranged weapons:

  • 2 means that it can be used with a shield, but there is a reloading time penalty.

History

Prior to 0.14, there were elven, dwarven, and orcish variants of weapons which had small additional benefits, and demonspawn characters received a damage bonus when using demonic weapons - see Racial weapon variants. Also, several weapons were renamed: sabre to cutlass, double sword to bastard sword, and triple sword to claymore.
