used in fights to increase the damage meted out to opponents.

minimum strength to wield them. Abbreviated to weap, wpn, wp.
- 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.
