The spear is a melee weapon that does a large amount of damage, has a fairly long cooldown, and deals sharp damage.

Acquisition

Spears can be crafted at any smithy once the Long Blades research has been completed, from Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 75 Stuff (Wood/Metals) and 12,000 ticks (3.33 mins) of work.

Spears can be purchased from any combat supplier or war merchant, or obtained from several kinds of melee raiders.

Analysis

As is typical with any sharp weapon, spear attacks cause bleeding, and generally fares poorly against armor when compared to blunt weapons. Just like the club, the spear is a melee weapon that tribals use - but unlike the club, spears must be produced at an electric or fueled smithy.

Spears have the second highest base damage output out of all melee weapons, with the highest being the longsword. On that note, the spear seems to serve as a middle-ground between the gladius and the longsword, seeing as its damage output and cost also stands right between the two weapons.

It has a great advantage against armored targets, with the stab attack having much greater armor penetration, at 50% base.
