Combat

From Vintage Story Wiki

To defend oneself in Vintage Story one must master the art of combat, as there are many silent dangers lurking in the shadows.

  • Melee Combat - First punch, then ask. Every adversary can be attacked with a left mouse click, but beware, your normal attack range is pretty short unless you have something in your hands that extends your reach
  • Ranged Combat - Stones, Arrows and Spears can be used to inflict damage at great range. When you hold down your right mouse button a shrinking rectangle will appear on your screen. When that rectangle is the smallest, your accuracy will be the greatest, so timing is important!

Stone Age Weapons

Stones.png Any Stone you mine or pick up can be thrown from a safe distance at living things to perform minor damage (0.5 damage)
Stick.png If everything fails, a plain old stick still has a better range than just fist punching your way out (0.5 damage)
Woodenclub-normal.png Carved from a log with the help of a knife the club is sturdy and reliable, but does not inflict a lot of damage (1 damage, 1.5 dmg in version 1.6)
Spear-flint.png The spear is very fragile, but it's long range is a tremendous advantage. As with all stone tools, it can be made from granite, andesite, basalt, obsidian and flint. A flint spear does 1.25 damage during a melee attack and 3.5 damage when thrown
Bow-and-arrow.png The bow with flint arrow heads - a reliable and powerful long range weapon, but requires you to farm or find enough flax to craft the bowstring. (2.5 damage)

Metal Age Weapons

Sword-copper.png Your good old trusty sword. Nothing beats it's reliability and damage output. Higher metal tiers have higher durability and greater damage (2.5 - 4.5 damage)
Bow-and-arrow-copper.png The bow with metal arrow heads improves damage output (+0.5 dmg for copper, +1 dmg for gold/silver/tinbronze/bisbronze, +1.5 dmg for blackbronze, +2 dmg for iron)
Spear-copper.png If you need great melee range without the loss of durability, upgrade your spears to copper or bronze!
