  • All testing is semi-automated which allows for large sample sizes to be gathered per set of results with ease
  • All pawns have a skill level of 8 in melee
  • No pawns have any traits that affect combat performance
  • All pawns are of 18 years of age and completely healthy


Results in the table below are the percentages of battles that ikwas either won or tied against the weapon listed in the first column of said table, with a sample size of 2,000 battles per result. Higher percentages are better.
