Cavalry X: If the attack is made as a mounted Charge Action, each Effect inflicts X additional damage.

Fearsome X: In addition to its normal damage, each Effect inflicts X mental damage.

Grapple: On one or more Effects, the weapon ensnares the target. They cannot move except to make an Acrobatics or Athletics test to escape, at a difficulty equal to the Effects rolled. The difficulty for Exploit Actions is reduced by 1 against ensnared targets. You may free an ensnared target as a free action.

Heavy: Whenever a character wearing this armor takes Fatigue, they suffer an additional Fatigue.

Hidden X: The weapon can be concealed, requiring an Observation test with a difficulty of X. After attacking, a character may spend two Momentum to quickly re-conceal it.

Improvised: When a 5 or 6 is rolled on a damage die, that die either provides 1 damage or its Effect, but not both like it would for a normal weapon.

Intense: If this weapon inflicts one or more Harms, it inflicts an additional Harm.

Knockdown: The weapon can knock the target prone. The target may prevent this for 1 Doom for each Effect rolled.

Noisy: A character wearing this armor has all of their Stealth test difficulties increased by one step.

Non-Lethal: The weapon can’t inflict Harm. When it would, it instead Dazes the target for a round.

Parrying: Reduce the Doom cost to Defend or Protect with the Parry skill by 1.

Piercing X: Ignore X soak for each Effect rolled.

Shield X: The wielder may use the Parry skill against Ranged attacks in addition to Melee attacks. When the wielder has Guard, a shield grants X Dice Cover Soak against Melee and Ranged attacks.

Stun: The weapon can inflict the Staggered condition. The target may prevent this for 1 Doom for each Effect rolled.

Thrown: The weapon can be used as a ranged attack, with an optimal range of Close. Some weapons are additionally marked with (M), having an optimal range of Medium.

Unforgiving X: If the target was affected by an Exploit action before the attack was made, the attack gains Intense and Vicious X. (NB: An Exploit action is a D1 Observation test. On a success, the next attack gains Piercing 2. Any Momentum generated on this test and subsequently added to the attack also increases the damage roll by +1D.)

Vicious X: The attack deals X extra damage for each Effect rolled.

Volley: When making a Ranged attack, a Load of ammunition may be spent to turn the attack into a Volley. This adds a bonus d20 to the attack roll and +1D to the damage roll if it hits.
