    II.Weaponry
    
    This part is the ACTUAL faq,it gives you details about all weapons.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1.Black Jack
    
    A.What is it?
    
    It is a standard club.This is your short range non-lethal weapon.
    
    B.Whats its Use?
    
    It is used to knock out unsuspecting enemies,the unconsious enemies will not
    bother you for the rest of that level.It can also be used in normal combat.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    In order to use the black jack for a stealth take down sneak up on an unsusp-
    ecting enemy with this weapon selected and get close to him until garrett
    raises his arm.Now press the attack button to preform a stealth take down.
    In normal combat,just keep pressing the attack button in the direction of the
    enemy.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    In order to use the black jack for a stealth take down,the enemy must not be
    aware of your prescence in any way i-e they must not be searching for you with
    their weapons drawn.Secondly,although this weapon can also be used in normal
    combat,i strictly recommend against it as it causes VERY less damage.
    
    E.Where is It Found?
    
    It is with you all the time.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2.Dagger
    
    A.What is It?
    
    Dagger is your short range lethal weapon.
    
    B.Whats Its use?
    
    It is used to stealthly take out the enemies,in a more bloody fashion.It can
    also be used for close range open combat as it does a decent amount of damage
    to most enemies.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    In order to use the dagger for a stealth take down sneak up on an unsuspecting
    enemy with this weapon selected and get close to him until garrett raises his
    arm.Now press the attack button to preform a stealth take down.In normal combat,
    just keep pressing the attack button in the direction of the enemy.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    In order to use the dagger for a stealth take down,the enemy must not be aware
    of your prescence in any way i-e they must not be searching for you with their
    weapons drawn.Secondly,the dagger leaves bloody spots on floor when ever it is
    used,whether for a stealth take down or normal combat.These bloody spots,if not
    cleaned up using a water arrow,will cause you trouble if a guard or a normal
    person happens to notice them.I only recommend the dagger for normal combat.
    
    E.Where is it Found?
    
    It is with you all the time.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3.Broadhead Arrow
    
    Maximum Capacity: 30 Arrows
    
    A.What is it?
    
    It is your long range lethal arrow.This is sort of the sniper rifle of that
    era.
    
    B.Whats Its Use?
    
    The broadhead arrow is used to take out your enemies from a distance without
    them knowing.It can also be used to divert the enemies attention by releasing
    it very near to the enemy to create a minor noise.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    In order to use the broadhead arrow for a stealth take down,the enemy must not
    be aware of your prescence in any way i-e they must not be searching for you
    with their weapons drawn.Press the attack button to prepare your arrow and use
    the sight on the bow to aim for the enemy's chest or head.You can use the zoom
    function for more accuracy.Release the arrow by letting go of the attack button
    and if the arrow hit the enemy on the head or chest,it will immediately die.
    If you want to divert the enemy's attention then target an area close to the
    enemy and release the arrow.
    This arrow can be retrieved if it ends up in some sort of woodwork.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    If the arrow hits any other region except the head or chest,then the enemy will
    become aware of your prescence and will charge at you.It will also alert nearby
    enemies.The stealth take down results in a bloody spot,which if not cleaned,
    will land you into trouble.
    
    E.Where is it found?
    
    You have to buy these from shops.Other then that,they are found in very
    specific locations.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.Fire Arrow
    
    Maximum Capacity: 15 Arrows
    
    A.What is it?
    
    It is your long range EXTREMELY lethal arrow.This is like the rocket launcher
    of the that era.
    
    B.Whats Its Use?
    
    You will generally be using this weapon to take out your STRONGER foes,from a
    distance.There is no point of a stealth take down as this weapon creates a
    bright light when nocked plus a very loud sound when released.You will use it
    to take out the inhumanly creatures and the undead most of the time.It can also
    be used to lighten up unlit torches or candles.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    Very simple,just aim for the enemy and let go.This arrow will take out even the
    most toughest of enemies in a couple of hits.To light up a torch or candle,aim
    roughly at it and let go.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    You are at a big risk of exposing yourself when using this arrow as it creates
    a bright light when it is nocked,plus it causes a very loud sound when it is
    released.Not to mention the sound it produces when it hits an object.
    
    E.Where is it found?
    
    You can generally find the orangish-yellowish fire crystal near small fires,
    hot coal and other HOT places.Also available in shops.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5.Gas Arrow

    A.What is it?
    
    This arrow is your long range non-lethal weapon.

    guish torches and candles etc.

    Just aim for the specified person and let go.It is better if you aim for the
    head region.If you want to extinguish flames,then aim for the flame and let go.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    You can only carry five arrows.Plus the gas range is NOT very big so you have
    to aim accurately.
    
    E.Where is it found?
    
    Generally near air-vents or high places.Also available in shops.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Maximum Capacity: 20
    
    A.What is it?
    
    It is sort of like cover,so that you dont make noise while moving.
    
    B.Whats its use?
    
    It is used to create an area of moss,on which if you walk,you will produce NO
    sound at all no matter how fast you run.It is also used to temporarily handy-
    cap guards.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    Just aim at any solid peice of ground and let go.It will completely grow in a
    couple of seconds.If you want to temporarily handicap an enemy,then aim for
    the FACE and not anything else.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    Very rarely used.
    
    E.Where is it found?

    7-Noise-Maker Arrow

    B.Whats its use?
    
    It is used to divert the enemy's attention.
    
    C.How is it used?
    
    Just aim and fire the arrow some where near the enemy.It will start to make all
    sorts of noises which will immediately grab the enemy's attention and will go
    towards the general area to investigate the sound,giving you time to sneak by.
    You can pick up the used noise-maker arrow again,most of the time.
    
    D.Drawbacks
    
    The enemy is suspicious after investigating the sound.If you accidently fire
    the arrow near yourself,you will be in big trouble.

    out bloody spots on the floor.
    
    c.How is it used?
    
    Just aim for the flame and let go.It will immediately extinguish it.If you
    want to wipe out bloody spots,aim for the spot and let go.The whole spot will
    be cleaned in a matter of seconds.

    It is plan B if plan A fails.

    A.What is it?
    
    It is a tactical lethal weapon.

    The enemy doesnt know what hit them.When an enemy moves over this mine,it
    explodes dealing the enemy huge amounts of damage.

    You need a tactical mind to use it.Watch the enemy's patrol and place the mine
    roughly in that area.It will explode when the enemy moves over it.Since you

    then a normal enemy will slip on it and slide some distance.If an enemy is
    searching for you with weapons drawn,he will only fall down.It can also be used
    to avoid tailing enemies.Shoot a fire arrow into a puddle of oil to instantly
    create a fire.Most enemy's wil not follow you through it and if they do,they
    will be badly damaged if they make it across.
