A bronze whip

A whip is a blunt weapon that consists of a flexible length of material that can be swung with great speed. Whips have the lowest contact area and highest velocity multiplier in the game, making them amazingly effective, even against armored opponents; this behavior has been reported as a bug. Whips are similar to scourges, though the scourge is an edge weapon with a larger contact area.

Whips use and train the lasher skill. As foreign weapons dwarves cannot forge whips, limiting supply to whatever low-quality specimens can be traded from human caravans and scavenged from invaders. All dwarves may equip a whip.

[edit] Bugs

  • Whips cut through steel armor like butter. While this is very beneficial(given that it is not being used against you), it is still a bug, and is bound to be fixed sometime. Bug:2712
