From Flexible Survival

To be able to better defend themselves in Combat, the player character can equip one of a variety of weapons they can find in the game. All weapons have a base damage value (starting weapons have a damage rating of 5). Unarmed combat starts at 4 damage. In most play modes, there is a pocketknife in the Bunker at the start of the game. A few weapons, such as the infected sword and the dirty whip are also tainted and will infect the player while they use them. Melee weapons have their damage increased based on the player's strength, while ranged weapons are increased by the player's perception. This increase is at a rate of +1 / 2 stat points above 10. Ranged weapons also grant a chance to gain first strike by firing before the creature fully closes into melee range.

While most weapons are scaled to be best suited to human-sized characters (represented by a size value of 3), some may be larger or smaller. Weapon size is compared against the scalevalue of the player (based on their current infection's size rating) and should the difference between the two be two or more, a penalty to hit is applied.
