Weapons are items whose primary function is to help the player to deal with zombies, animals and possibly with other players as well.
Weapons can be divided into three main categories: melee, ranged and explosives. Every attribute has at least one melee and ranged weapon covered under them.
A complete list of weapons can be found in List of weapons.

Strength Weapons[]

Clubs, Bats and Sledgehammers[]

Clubs and bats are covered under the perk Pummel Pete. They offer a balance between attack speed and damage. Sledgehammers are covered under the perk Skull Crusher. They, on the other hand, deal the most melee damage of all weapons in a single hit, but trade the power to the very slow attack speed. One misplaced hit could cost the player their life.

Shotguns[]

Shotguns are covered under the perk Boomstick. They offer the player a good source of damage in close-quarter combat. However, shotguns' power falls off quite fast when the range between the player and the target increases.

Perception Weapons[]

Spears[]

Spears are covered under the perk Javelin Master. They offer a longer range than other melee weapons and the ability to throw them. Throwing the only weapon the player has isn't advised though!

Explosives[]

Explosives are covered under the perk Demolitions Expert. They offer a way to take out many enemies at the same time with grenades and other explosive throwables. They are, however, consumed in the process, forcing the player to craft more of them much like ammunition. Even thought mines are unlocked by the Demolitions Expert perk, they don't benefit from it any other way.

Rifles[]

Rifles are covered under the perk Dead Eye. They offer the longest range a weapon has with a high damage per bullet. At the downside is the slow attack speed and small magazine capacity.

Fortitude Weapons[]

Knuckles[]

Knuckles are covered under the perk The Brawler. They have quite small range and damage per attack, but offer a fast attack speed and low stamina cost.

Agility Weapons[]

Knives[]

Knives are covered under the perk Deep Cuts. They offer a lower range and damage per attack, but higher attack speed and debuffs such as bleeding that deal damage. Knives also have boosted damage when hitting zombies that are unaware of the player.

Archery[]

Bows and crossbows are covered under the perk Archery. They offer a quiet and efficient way to deal with zombies and other enemies. The drawback is the need to reload after every shot and slow attack speed.

Handguns and SMG-5[]

Handguns and the SMG are covered under the perk Gunslinger. Pistols offer a decent attack speed and magazine size with quite high damage. The SMG does the same but automatically.

Intelligence Weapons[]

Stun Batons[]

Stun batons are covered under the perk Electrocutioner. While not offering too much damage, they cover it up with a unique ability to electrocute and shock zombies, making them stunned for a while.
