Probably the most commonly known medieval weapon of all time. This sword is used the majority of the time in two hands, though some use it with one hand. Longswords are used for hewing, slicing, and stabbing. The sword's offensive purposes is derived from it's physical shape too. Both the crossgaurd and the pommel don't provide much agility, but they can give the user a great amount of accuracy with his blows because of it's steadiness.
This weapon is a relatively simple one, using the end of the handle to deliver powerful blows. The head piece is to get used to because of how it's shape goes all around the weapon. If you were to hit anyone with the head, they are going to need some medical assistance A.S.A.P. The mace is a very reliable and light weapon that was used as a secondary most times because weight, which gave the average knight some extra power if they were in need, but this weapon, sadly, has horrible defense. The handle would most likely brake if it was hit more than once by a longsword.
This ax was originally used by the vikings up north, but eventually made it down to the battlefield in Europe. Probably the most popular yet most effective ax of it's time because of its great penetration and reliability. It could be used as a throwing weapon if it's handle was cut short enough or used as a primary weapon slashing and pummeling enemies with it's huge blade.
A nice all around weapon that was fairly common on the battlefield, but did not have the damage most knights were looking for. The spear was very light depending on which type of head was put onto the spear allowing the soldiers to carry a vast majority of them. It also has great range with the right wind speed and direction giving the possessor, if thrown well, a rewarding kill, but If not there would be no probably running toward the wounded soldier, ripping the spear out, and finishing him off.
Wow was this weapon a life savor! In many of the European the long bow has saved a lot of lives in the medieval times. This weapon has amazing accuracy and can be fired at all ranges, most likely, with a kill following. This bow, unlike it's brother crossbow, has the best range out all handheld medieval weapons which gives it a true 'long shooter' his needed edge on the field.
