This page is for listing all weapons in CoffeeMUD. A weapon is equipped in the WIELD position, and normally improves the amount of damage you do in combat.

  • Weapons normally require only one hand to use, but larger weapons require two hands (your WIELD and HELD equipment positions). Some skills allow characters to also use additional weapons equipped in the HELD position (such as two-weapon fighting).
    • If you lose a hand in combat (regardless of which one), you will lose your HELD wear location (or one HELD location, if you have more than 2 hands) and be unable to wield 2 handed weapons. If you lose all hands, you will be unable to WIELD any weapons.
  • Weapons have varying weapon classifications (Weapon Types), and varying damage types.

Weapon Notes

  • Thrown weapons will be hurled at the enemy without advancing at them, if they are within range. After throwing the weapon, you will need to equip another weapon (especially if you wish to throw another weapon at your enemy).
  • Ranged weapons are not expended when you attack an enemy, but often require ammunition. A ranged weapon will have an ammunition capacity, after which, it must be reloaded. It will attempt to automatically reload for the first available ammunition in your inventory.
    • Crossbows require multiple rounds to load ammunition.

Damage Types

Also known as "Weapon Attack Types".

Ranged weapons require ammunition in order to use the weapon. The ammunition must be LOADed into the weapon. And while it may be confusing, some weapons share the name with some ammunitions, but ammunitions normally come in a cluster, pack, or other unit of quantity. For example, a Javelin can be a thrown weapon, but a Pack of 5 Javelins are ammunition for an Atlatl. One cannot remove one of the ammunition Javelins and use it as a is only an ammunition.

Ammunition Type Sample Weapons
Arrow Bow, Long Bow, Short Bow
Bolt Crossbow, Heavy Crossbow
Bullets Slings, Staff Slings, Hopaks
Darts Blowguns, Hand Crossbows
Javelins Atlatl, Spear Launchers

Adding Weapon Entries to the Wiki

There are several guidelines for placing items on the wiki:

  • Omit any leading articles for describing the item, such as "A", "AN" or "THE". This will help facilitate searches so that not all items end up in the A or T indexes.
  • Please do not list the MOB or ROOM where the item can be found. Listing the AREA is fine, so that players can explore areas for themselves to find the items.
  • Similarly, for learning recipes, only provide the skill type and the resultant level.
  • For all items that fit the weapon category, use the Weapon Template to create the item.
    • There are instructions on how to use the template within the body of the template. Do not modify the template itself.
    • Add this category to the bottom of the page, as well as an WEAPON(WeaponClassification), WEAPON(Level#) and WEAPON(DamageType) category for future categorization pages.


This category has the following 3 subcategories, out of 3 total.
