When a character attacks a target, they make an attack roll. If they have an Outcome of at least 1 (after subtracting any defensive Outcomes), they inflict an Injury on the target with the severity equal to Outcome + Weapon Damage - the target's Armor.
The roll (Attribute, Ability, and Difficulty) and the bonus Damage all depend on the type of weapon. Described below are the most common classes of weaponry. The Difficulty of these rolls may be decreased or increased based on situational conditions at the GM's discretion.
The specified rolls are for all-out attacks made with the relevant weapon. Weapons can be used in other ways with varying difficulties. For example, while the roll to actually Injure someone with a slingshot is Difficulty 8, merely hitting a person's body would be Difficulty 6 and wouldn't do any damage.
Note that while Guns are quite powerful, they can be difficult to transport and obtain. With a couple of Gifts, Contractors can make effective use of any type of weapon. Using Secondary Abilities can also be very helpful in making the most out of your weapon of choice.
