These weapons, also known as "light weapons" or "small weapons", are of questionable value to Geralt, but some do have their particular useful applications and they can be picked up and sold for orens, which is particularly useful during the early chapters. Once Geralt obtains Raven's armor, he can carry two, rather than one, of these weapons at any one time. Enemies who have less than 33% of their vitality left may be stunned and/or knocked down by any short weapon attack. Nevertheless, as with heavy weapons, they can not be used in Stun-finishers, meaning that while Geralt performs a finishing move, only increased damage is dealt but the opponent will not die as a result unless the damage exceeds current vitality. All short weapons carry the caveat "this weapon can not be combined with witchers' combat styles".

Axes Edit

Axes typically have the dislodge shield effect, which functions similarly to disarm, but causes the opponent to lose their shield rather than their weapon.

Dwarven axe from Carbon Edit

Found in a wardrobe in the first hut inside the brickmakers' village in the swamp.

Daggers Edit

A dagger (probably from Vulgar Latin: daca — a Dacian knife) is a typically double-edged blade used for stabbing or thrusting. They often fulfil the role of a secondary defence weapon in close combat. Geralt carries a dagger as do most people in the Witcher saga.

Daggers are primarily used to inflict Pain. Additionally, a special animation is shown when Geralt finishes off a knocked down opponent if he is carrying a dagger.

Assassin's dagger Edit

Found on Salamandra assassins, among others. A corpse on the path leading North to Gramps' hut in the swamps has one. Note: This is the only weapon with innate Poison. There is also an animation when you knockdown an opponent. Geralt will then spike his sword into the ground and pull out his dagger and start stabbing him like crazy. Just place this dagger in the bottom storage slot.

Torch Edit

Illumination is the chief purpose of the torch, but as a weapon it has the benefit of causing incineration, making it useful against, for example, Echinopsae — early in the game, torches are a quicker, safer anti-Echinops weapon than Geralt's swords. Torches are ubiquitous, available in towns, houses, crypts, ruins etc. — look in barrels or wardrobes (and worth decent coin). Surprisingly, they can not be used to light up camp fire.
