    1. Version History
    
    Differences with Version 1.0:
    * Includes power and durability ratings for all sub weapon levels.
    * Reworked the description templates.
    * Rewrote introductory section.
    
    This version is about 97% complete. I have not yet completed the Odd 
    Jobs and Second Amendment missions, so for now this doesn't have stats 
    for the Beam Sword and Mega Buster. Any information on those, as well 
    as further information and/or corrections on the weapons listed, will 
    be appreciated and welcome.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Notes On Listed Statistics
    
    Attack
    ----------
    This is the estimated maximum number of hits it takes for each weapon 
    to defeat an enemy on Hard mode (Normal and Easy would obviously take 
    less). What I mean by "estimated maximum" is that various factors can 
    reduce this count. Just expect a weapon to take no more hits than 
    listed.
    
    The number of hits is counted for the following enemies:
    * Zombie: (The regular human zombies)
    * Jo: (The large cop zombie)
    * Kent: (The zombie with the camera and grenades)
    * Cliff: (The zombie with two machetes)
    * Cultists: (People in the yellow raincoats)
    * Special Forces: (People in military gear)
    
    The poodles and parrots aren't listed, because poodles take just as 
    many hits as a regular zombie (so listing them would be redundant), 
    and parrots take about one hit with anything.
    
    The attack numbers for weapon categories vary thus:
    * Small Sub Weapons have five attack levels each for the Normal Attack 
    (pressing A) and Strong Attack (swinging the Wii Remote).
    * Large Sub Weapons have the same attacks for each level, but do have 
    a normal attack and strong attack,
    * Guns and Thrown Weapons have one attack number per enemy.
    
    Sometimes weapons have special listings instead of the numbers. This 
    is what they mean:
    * "0" means it won't damage an enemy at all. It is either ineffective 
    or can only stun it.
    * "?" means it does damage an enemy, but that weapon is either for 
    running past an enemy, or to stun that enemy rather, than defeat it. 
    This mainly applies to weapons that are either more about traveling 
    than attack and do very little damage (like the Skateboard), or get 
    randomly tossed around after throwing them and you have to go find and 
    retrieve it to attack again (like the Soccer Ball). Basically if you 
    see this, it is not recommended you actually try to kill an enemy with 
    that weapon.
    * "B" means the weapon will break before it actually defeats an enemy. 
    This usually applies to enemies that can't be defeated by one hit with 
    a thrown large sub weapon.
    * "X" means the number cannot be applied for that enemy and/or level. 
    For one thing, most of the special enemies are not in the beginning of 
    the game, so it is impossible to face them with attack level one.
    * "(any number followed by an asterisk)" means the number applies 
    across every attack level. This usually applies to weapons that can 
    defeat zombies with one hit even from attack level 1.
    
    Durability
    ----------
    Durability is how many hits on an enemy or breakable object the weapon 
    can inflict before breaking. Note that hitting multiple targets in one 
    blow still counts the number of hits in that blow, not the one blow 
    itself.
    
    Each small and large sub weapon has five durability levels, and the 
    number listed for each is an estimated maximum (various factors can 
    reduce it).
    
    Since some weapons cannot be reached early in the game, they will be 
    listed at X for durability levels they can't be rated on.
    
    Also, some large sub weapons will be listed with "(1)" after the 
    durability ratings. This means that the strong attack throws the 
    weapon and it breaks, no matter how many normal hits it has left.
    
    Speed, Range, and Area
    ----------
    Speed is graded by how much time there is between attacks with the 
    same weapon.
    * "Fast" is less than a second.
    * "Medium" is 1 to 1.5 seconds.
    * "Slow" is longer than 1.5 seconds.
    * "Rapid Fire" means about 0.1 seconds.
    
    Range is graded by how close your target has to be.
    * "A" means unlimited range (which covers most of the guns).
    * "B" means you can throw it across a room.
    * "C" means the weapon will hit from a few feet away.
    * "D" means an enemy needs to be about arm's length to hit.
    
    Area is graded by how much area the attack covers. These are more 
    varied, so they will be given more detailed descriptions.
    
    And all of these will be noted when they differ between normal attacks 
    and strong attacks, especially speed. But if the attack speed is 
    listed as "X", that means it can't be timed in between attacks 
    (usually because it's thrown or it's an item for travelling).
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Small Sub Weapons
    
    You can pick up one at a time, and will hold onto it until it breaks, 
    you pick up another small sub weapon, or (for some of these weapons) 
    throwing it.
