Weapons can be essential for defeating your foes in Arena. Other than a punch or unarmed attack, you can choose from either ranged or melee weapons of various types, depending on what is available for your character's class. Each weapon can be made from a variety of materials, each of which affects the weapon's ability to hit and the damage it inflicts on your enemies.
Weapons can be made of different metals, which determines their ability to hit, the damage they do, the rate at which they wear out, and their color. Most weapons have no metal specified in their name, these have the damage and chance to hit of steel but the appearance of iron. Deterioration rate is a percentage of the damage dealt by a weapon removed from its condition.
