1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
The battle sling is a military grade sling, a simple an yet multipurpose tool for halfling warriors, few and far between as they may be. The battle sling can be used as a normal sling, but may also be wielded (with sling bullet loaded) as a makeshift sap, dealing its battle sling damage as lethal or nonlethal damage at a -2 attack penalty.
In addition when unloaded, it can be snapped into the face of unsuspecting enemies as an attack action, making a touch attack. This deals no damage but opponents take a -1 penalty to attack and AC for 1 round. The penalty stacks with itself, meaning that four successful snaps deals a -4 penalty for 1 round.
Unlike a normal sling, the battle sling can be reloaded as a free action.
