The term Weapon (also called Primary Weapon, Base Weapon, or Standard Weapon) usually refers to the main weapon held in a playable character's hand, attack in front of the character, is assigned a single button press, and does not consume resources such as Hearts or Mind Points.
There are several different types of weapons that can be equipped:
