Expeditions: Viking has a variety of different weapons to choose from. Each weapon type's damage and accuracy is affected by the character's base stats. While weapons do not directly determine how much critical chance the user has, they do modify the amount of critical damage by the weapon's critical multiplier. Additionally, weapons have armour penetration, which allows the wielder to do damage to the opponent which is unmitigated by opponent's armour rating. Finally, each weapon type has a unique set of skills available while in combat.

Weapons can be found after combat in the form of loot, on the over-world map, from completing quests, by crafting them while camping, or by paying a smith to craft them for you.

Weapon ModifiersEdit

Base DamageEdit

The amount of damage the weapon does before the wielder's stats and skills are taken into account.

Swords, Axes and Dane Axes are governed by strength. Therefor every 1 point of strength increases their damage per skill level of the matching Weapon.

Knives and Spears are governed by finesse. Therefor every 1 point of finesse increases their damage per skill level of the matching Weapon.

Bows and Slings are governed by perception. Therefor every 1 point of perception increases their damage per skill level of the matching Weapon by 1 (10 points of perception = 10 Damage per skill level), perception also grants a bonus to accuracy with the same scaling.

Shields (not technically weapons) are governed by endurance. Therefor every 1 point of endurance increases their block chance per skill level in Shields.

Critical MultiplierEdit

The amount that a critical hit on an opponent modifies the weapon's damage by. This does not increase a character's chance to critically hit.

Armour PenetrationEdit

The portion of the attack's damage that is not affected by the opponent's armour rating.

DurabilityEdit

Durability lower than 100% will lower weapon damage in combat. Durability is Increased by 1 per Salvage used in Crafting, it follows the same Statistic <=> Salvage Pattern in found Weapons.

One-Handed WeaponsEdit

One-handed weapons may be dual-wielded or used in combination with a shield. However, swords may only be equipped in the main-hand slot. Shields may not be equipped in the main-hand. One-handed weapons may only strike opponents with one tile range.

Two-Handed WeaponsEdit

Two-handed weapons take up both the main-hand and off-hand slot. Therefore, they may not be dual-wielded or used in combination with a shield. All two-handed weapons may be used one and two tiles away from the opponent. In addition, they may strike an opponent over low cover, and through hexes occupied by either allies or enemies.

The fact that two-handed weapons can currently hit an opponent through solid walls and high cover may not be intended.
