    ------------------------
    ================================================================================
    Each enemies in the game is assigned with a certain amount of vitality. You have
    to deplete their vitality by using the various weapons found in the game. Below
    is a chart showing the amount of the vitality each time a weapon can deplete per
    hit.
    
    Certain enemies have better/weaker defense against some monsters. This chart is
    written using zombie as a standard.
    
    For the physical attacks, some of them can be charged. The attack damage is
    written in a range. The smallest number is the damage amount inflicted when not
    charged, and the biggest number is the damage amount inflicted when fully
    charged.
    
    For David's Knife, the 1st and 3rd stab is the same as the attack damage done
    by any character depending on the type of knife, but the 2nd and 4th stab is
    fixed (eg, David execute a knife combo with Folding Knife.)
    1st stab - 42
    2nd stab - 80
    3rd stab - 42
    4th stab - 120
    overall  - 284 (total)

    enemies. Here are the descriptions, using the zombie as an example:
    
    Small  = The zombie will react little to the attack.
    Medium = The zombie will stumble back a little, before recovering and continuing
    the advance.
    Big    = The zombie will fling back across the room.
    
    Here is a chart showing the impacts of all the weapons. 
    S = Small
    M = Medium
    B = Big
    
    Additionally, some weapons have special features.
    Blast Radius - The enemies near the direct target will sustain damage too
    Continuous Flame - The enemy will sustain additional damage as long as the flame
    is burning the monster
    Spread Flame - The fire will spread to whoever touches the flame

     -------------
     Burst Handgun
     -------------
    Capacity: 20 Handgun Ammo
    
    3 rounds burst-fire feature. A good weapon to use on zombie. Also great for use
    on some other monsters like the Megabyte. Unfotunately, this gun is quite rare.
    Inflict slightly lesser damage than a normal Handgun.
    
     --------------
     Mark's Handgun
     --------------
    Capacity: 15 Handgun Ammo/Handgun Magazine
    
    Mark's personal gun. Cannot be transferred. Slightly lesser power in close range
    compared to a standard Handgun, but more damage when fired from far. No much
    difference from a Handgun.
    
     ----------
     Handgun GL
     ----------
    Capacity: 17 Handgun Ammo/Handgun GL Magazine
    
    This gun is nearly identical with Mark's Handgun, except that it inflicts a
    little lesser damage when far, and holds 17 rounds. Handgun GL is an ideal gun
    to use on Gigabyte from afar.
    
     -------
     Handgun
     -------
    Capacity: 15 Handgun Ammo/Handgun Magazine
    
    The stanard Handgun which can be found in all scenarios. Standard damage
    modifier at medium/far range.
    
     ----------
     Handgun HP
     ----------
    Capacity: 13 Handgun Ammo/Handgun HP Magazine
    
    Power remains regardless of distance. Considering that it appears in the 
    "Desperate Times" and its has high power, it is a great weapon to use during the
    zombie siege in that scenario. Use it with Kevin's precise aiming ability for
    the best effeciency.
    
     ----------
     Handgun SG
     ----------
    Capacity: 13 Handgun Ammo/Handgun SG Magazine
    
    When close, the gun has considerable high power, but weak at medium and long
    distance. However, when used close range on Green Zombie (this gun only appears
    in Flashback scenario), there is a possibility that you will sustain the poison
    mist. 
    
     --------
     Revolver
     --------
    Capacity: 5 Revolver Ammo/Revolver S. Loader
    
    High power revolver. However, at far range, it have only 1/2 the power when in
    close range. Although it inflicts most damage at close range, but it is equally
    dangerous when use on the Lions when near, it is recommended to fire it at them
    at close range.
    
     ------------------------
     Kevin's .45 Auto Handgun
     ------------------------
    Capacity: 7 Auto Handgun Ammo/Auto Handgun Magazine
    
    Kevin's private gun. With more than double the power of the Revolver at close
    range, it is ideal for use on boss. Couple it with Kevin's precise aiming, and
    it can become one of the most powerful weapons.
    
     --------------
     Magnum Handgun
     --------------
    Capacity: 7 Magnum Handgun Ammo/Magnum Handgun S. Loader
    
    This gun is able to hold 7 magnum bullets. The power modifier is quite minor in
    further distances. Useful for killing the Gigabyte. Best use with the precise
    aiming of Alyssa and Kevin.
    
     ---------------
     Magnum Revolver
     ---------------
    Capacity: 5 Magnum Revolver Ammo/Magnum Revolver S. Loader
    
    The most powerful guns among the Hand Gun series. The power doesn't increase 
    a lot in further distances. It is recommended to use this gun in "End Of The 
    Road", boss battle against the Nyx/Tyrant-R. Couple it with Kevin/Alyssa's
    precise aiming for best effect.

     Sub Machine Gun
     ---------------
    Capacity: 30 Sub Machine Gun Magazine/Handgun Ammo
    
    A singular bullet is weaker than a bullet from a standard Handgun. However, when
    it pumps in damage like there's no tomorrow when you hold the trigger. This gun
    is best use during the zombie siege and the Nyx boss battle (together with the
    Assault Rifle)
    
     -------------
     Assault Rifle
     -------------
    Capacity: 30 Assault Rifle Magazine/Handgun Ammo
    
    It have higher firing power than the Sub Machine Gun. In "End Of The Road" 
    scenario, it is advised to use this gun to attack the core of Nyx. Best use in
    that situation together with the Sub Machine Gun with another player.
    
     ---------
     Shotgun E
     ---------
    Capacity: 7 Shotgun Ammo
    
    Shotgun E has a little lesser power compared to the Shotgun when close, but the
    power modifier is much smaller. It is recommended to use this gun at medium
    range against the Gigabyte, Megabyte and the lions. Due to its wide radius, you
    can use it to attack several monsters at close range.
    
     -------
     Shotgun
     -------
    Capacity: 7 Shotgun Ammo
    
    Power is higher than Shotgun E when close, but its power decrease significantly
    at further distances. At far, the attack power reduces to only 10%. Besides
    attacking, it is great for removing the land mines, and like the Shotgun E, good
    for multiple monsters attack at close range.
    
     -------------
     Hunting Rifle
     -------------
    Capacity: 2 Hunting Rifle Ammo
    
    Power remains the same for all distances. This high power weapon is best used on
    the lions. At Very Hard mode, you can easily kill 1 lion with just 1 Hunting
    Rifle (or an additional bullet from the Shotgun E at most).
    
    
                                                                 /-----------------\
    -------------------------------------------------------------| LAUNCHER SERIES |
                                                                 \-----------------/
    
     ----------------
     Grenade Launcher
     ----------------
    Capacity: 255 Grenade Rounds/Acid Rounds/Flame Rounds
    
    The Grenade Launcher can be loaded with 3 types of ammunition. However, only 2
    of them exist in the same scenario, and the Grenade Launcher exists in 2 
    different scenarios. The launcher have slow firing rate, and each type of rounds
    work differently.
    
    (Acid Rounds)
    Found in The End Of The Road, this type of rounds is effective against Tyrant-R
    and Nyx. Not suitable for use onto zombie and other monsters. 
    
    (Flame Rounds)
    Found in the Flashback scenario in difficulties lower than "Very Hard". This
    rounds is generally effective against all plant-type monsters (Green Zombie,
    Evil Shade, Huge Plant, plant tentacles etc) and Axe Man. 
    
    (Grenade Rounds)
    Power is higher than the Acid Rounds. Effective against Tyrant in the lab area.
    Not so effective against Tyrant-R compared to Acid Rounds, but that doesn't mean
    you should not use this during the Tyrant-R battle. Great for exposing the core
    of the Nyx.
    
     ---------------
     Rocket Launcher
     ---------------
    Capacity: 1 Rocket Missile
    
    The strongest weapon in the game. This weapon contains only 1 missile, and there
    is no ammunition refill for it. Attack the core of the Nyx with other weapons,
    then fire the Rocket Launcher onto the exposed core to eliminate the Nyx easily.
    
    In Showdown Mode, this weapon is capable of inflicting 9999 damage.
    
                                                                    /--------------\

     -------------
     Folding Knife
     -------------
    A knife that can be found in Underbelly. David starts with this weapon in his
    tool kit too (can't be transferred to other character). Though not a great
    attacking weapon by itself considering that the zombie will ignore your knife
    attack and attack you if you attack them head on, it is a great ammo saver. 
    Try to knock down a monster onto the ground, then slash at them using this
    weapon. David is able to perform a 3-hit slash with this weapon.
    
     -------------
     Butcher Knife
     -------------
    Higher power than the Butcher Knife. David can combine it with Wooden Pole to
    create the Spear. In Flashback, it is recommended to create the Spear from it
    due to the narrow passages in that area.
    
     ------------
     Combat Knife
     ------------
    As the name suggest, the Combat Knife is created specifically for combat, and
    hence it is the most powerful knife in the game. A great ammo saver like the
    Folding Knife. This weapon is effective for use when you runs out of ammo in
    the Nyx battle. 
    
    
                                                                    /--------------\

     -----------
     Wooden Pole
     -----------
    Endurance Level: 4
    
    The next stage of the Scrub Brush and the Long Pole. Wooden Pole can be combined
    with another Wooden Pole to reform the Long Pole, or with the Butcher Knife for
    the Spear (David user only). It will be broken down after 4 hits, and have low 
    attack power too. Most effective for Mark user for his full swing move, and Jim 
    for his multiple swing move. The next stage of the Wooden Pole is the Stick.
    
     -------------
     Square Timber
     -------------
    Endurance Level: 10
    
    No difference from the Wooden Pole, except that it have more the twice the
    endurance level of the Wooden Pole. Also, it cannot be combine with anything to
    create any weapon. When its endurance level reaches 0, it turns into the Stick.
    
     -----------
     Scrub Brush
     -----------
    Endurance Level: 8
    
    Rather than attacking, this weapon is more suited for fending off monsters. The
    Scrub Brush is wielded by pushing its head portion forward. Slow speed, when it
    is broken, it turns into the "Wooden Pole". Mark user can perform full swing
    with this weapon. In addition, it is good for pushing off Green Zombie. 
    
     ---------
     Long Pole
     ---------
    Endurance Level: 9
    
    Just a little higher power than the Scrub Brush. When it is broken, it turns the
    Wooden Pole. It can be formed when a Scrub Brush is broken down, or by combining
    2 Wooden Poles as David. As it can be found before the hospital of the 
    Underbelly, it will be the weapon use for pushing back the Axe Man.
    
     ----------------
     Curved Iron Pipe
     ----------------
    Endurance Level: 5
    
    Same attack power as the Long Pole. When the endurance of the Iron Pipe and the
    Hammer reaches 0, they turn into this weapon. This weapon has lesser endurance
    level and power than the Iron Pipe. Mark is able to perform the full swing with
    this weapon, and the same goes to Jim's multiple swing ability. The next stage
    of the Curved Iron Pipe is the Bent Iron Pipe.
    
     ------
     Crutch
     ------
    Endurance Level: 10
    
    Same attack power as the Iron Pipe, but with slightly smaller range. Mark is 
    able to perform the full swing with this weapon, and the same goes to Jim's 
    multiple swing ability. Turns into the "Broken Crutch" when its endurance reach
    0.
    
     ---------
     Iron Pipe
     ---------
    Endurance Level: 10
    
    This weapon is identical with the Crutch insteads of attack power and endurance
    level. However, it can be combined with several items as David to create some
    conventional weapons. When it is combined with the Concrete Piece, you will get
    the Hammer. When combined with the Battery, you get the Stun Rod. Mark is able 
    to perform the full swing with this weapon, and the same goes to Jim's multiple 
    swing ability. Turns into the "Curved Iron Pipe" when its endurance reach 0.
    
     -----
     Spear
     -----
    Endurance Level: 15
    
    Can only be created by combining the Wooden Pole/Long Pole with the Butcher
    Knife as David. High endurance level, and powerful compared to the rest of the
    pole type weapons. Great for combating the Axe Man or the zombie. Characters
    with low vitality like Cindy or Yoko can use it. It becomes the Long Pole when
    its endurance reaches 0.
    
     ---
     Axe
     ---
    Endurance Level: -
    
    The power weapon exclusive to the Flashback scenario, the Axe will not be broken
    down after repeated use. Jim can make multiple swing attack with this weapon.
    In addition, it is good for Cindy user, thanks to her dodging ability. When use
    on Evil Shade and Plant Tentacles, they will not respawn after death.
    
     ------
     Hammer
     ------
    Endurance Level: 10
    
    One of the weapons that only David can create. It is created by combining the
    Concrete Piece and the Iron Pipe. Mark is able to perform the full swing with 
    this weapon, and the same goes to Jim's multiple swing ability. This weapon is
    one of the most powerful melee weapons available. Broken down into the Curved
    Iron Pipe after repeated use.
    
     --------
     Stun Rod
     --------
    Endurance Level: 8
    
    The strongest weapon among the melee series, this weapon can only be created by
    David with the combination of the Iron Pipe and the Battery. Effective for use
    against the zombies in the zombie siege in Desperate Times and the Tyrant fight
    in End Of The Road. Mark can perform full swing with this weapon. It turns into
    the Curved Iron Pipe when it is broken.

     -----
     Stick
     -----
    Capacity: 1
    
    When the Wooden Pole or a Square Timber is broken down, they turns into the
    Stick. Low damage, but great impact. It is great if a zombie is blocking you way
    and you need to get past him. Not a suitable weapon for attack.
    
     -------------
     Broken Crutch
     -------------
    Capacity: 1
    
    When the Crutch is broken down, it turns into the Broken Crutch. Like the Stick,
    it have low power, but great impact. Better use it to knock away Green Zombie.
    
     --------------
     Bent Iron Pipe
     --------------
    Capacity: 1
    
    The Bent Iron Pipe has twice the attack damage of the Broken Crutch and the
    Stick. When the Curved Iron pipe's endurance reaches 0, it will turn into this
    weapon. In FILE 1, you can knock down a zombie with this, not not in FILE 2
    Very Hard any more.
    
     --------------
     Concrete Piece
     --------------
    Capacity: 1
    
    Rather than tossing it at enemies, you can also combine it with the Iron Pipe
    to form the Hammer. Unlike the Stick and the Broken Crutch, the damage from
    the Concrete Piece is quite high.
    
     -------------
     Monkey Wrench
     -------------
    Capacity: 12
    
    This weapon can only be found in the tool kit of David. David starts with 12
    of it, and there is no refill, not to mention that it can't be transfer to 
    other character. Useful for fending off zombie and hunter. You can knock down
    a zombie with 1 wrench in FILE 1, but in FILE 2, it takes about 2 to knock
    a zombie down. An effective weapon to be used onto the Lion in Wild Things.
    
     ----------------------------------
     Chemical Bottle (Special Chemical)
     ----------------------------------
    Capacity: 3
    
    Created by filling the empty bottles with the special chemical in the 
    Pharmacy of the hospital of Flashback scenario. 1 bottle is all it takes to
    kill any plant-type enemies (Huge Plant, Green Zombie, Evil Shade etc). Also
    useful for use against Axe Man. 
    
     ------------------------
     Chemical Bottle (Yellow)
     ------------------------
    Capacity: 3
    
    A secondary weapon for use in the Flashback scenario. This weapon is most
    effective for use against the Hunter and the Tyrant. This chemical inflicts more
    damage to the Tyrant than the Grey Chemical.
    
     ----------------------
     Chemical Bottle (Grey)
     ----------------------
    Capacity: 3
    
    This explosive weapon is great for use against Hunter. Although it seems to have
    great use for the Tyrant too, the damage isn't that big, especially compared to
    the Yellow chemical. 
    
     ----------------
     Molotov Cocktail
     ----------------
    Capacity: 5
    
    This weapon is created by combining the Newspaper, Alcohol Bottle and the

     ---------------
     Pesticide Spray
     ---------------
    Number Of Use: 9
    
    Useful against the wasps. Also good for slowing down zombie, but not good as an
    attacking weapon against them. You can combine it with the Lighter to create
    the Flame Spray if you are a David user.
    
     --------
     Stun Gun
     --------
    Number Of Use: 8
    
    Alyssa's starting item, which can be transferred to other characters. When 
    combined with the Battery in Desperate Times or End Of The Road scenario, you
    can refill the 'number of use' by 8. In other scenario, you can throw it away
    after you have used it. Small power, but good for knocking down zombie. With
    skill, this weapon is great for use against Tyrant too.
    
     -----------
     Flame Spray
     -----------
    Number Of Use: 9
    
    Created by combining the Pesticide Spray and the Lighter as David, this is great
    for eliminating zombie, plant tentacles and the Evil Shade. In additional, it is
    a good weapon for use against lion in the Wild Things scenario too, but watch
    out for the counter attack. This weapon spray a stream of fire at its target,
    and has the fire element.
    
     ----------
     Timer Bomb
     ----------
    Capacity: 1
    
    The special weapon created by David only, by combining the Junk Parts in his 
    tool kit and the Battery item. After creating the Timer Bomb, you can pass it to
    any other character, but to ignit it, you need to combine it with the Lighter.
    It is great for eliminating multiple zombies during the siege in Desperate Times
    but be careful not to get too close to the blast radius (same goes to your
    companions). Hence, it is not really recommended. Rather, you should use it to
    blast open doors. 
    
    
                                                                 /-----------------\

    at all.
