  1. noun A class of objects specifically intended to be used in fights to increase the damage meted out to opponents. The best weapons are swords and axes, but these require a minimum strength to wield them. Abbreviated to weap, wpn, wp.
  2. noun An object being used to hit an opponent in a fight. This may be a weapon in the preceding sense, but can be whatever comes to hand. While looking for a proper weapon, people will often carry something easier to find, eg. a brand (lit ones are usually better). Almost anything can be used as a weapon in this context, but 'obvious' ones are usually the best. See good weapon, bad weapon.
