Full Version: Monofilament Whip: 1 handed or 2 handed?

Is the Monofilament Whip 1 handed or is it 2 handed?
Doc Chase
One, like most whips.
KarmaInferno
I don't think the rules say, but it makes more sense one-handed.

You can't really use a second hand for better leverage, like you can with a rigid weapon.

one-handed (maybe even "one-fingered" )

with a one-handed Dance

Remember with this thing : being literally one-handed is just a critical glitch away cool.gif !
Traul
One-handed, otherwise one could not use the implanted version.
Medicineman
By Raw if you split your Pool you could use 2 (maybe 3 ?) Whips in one Hand.
Or are there any Rules against that ?

with a Split Dance

There's no rule *for* it. No weapons are 'half-handed'. biggrin.gif

Fingercompartment with a Monofilament Whip wink.gif
so (theoretically) you could have up to 4 per Hand(sans Thumb)

Yeah, sound like fun. But the real fun comes after you used them : figuring a way untangle them to be able to retract the wires... whithout loosing too much fingers from the other hand cool.gif !
Yerameyahu
Right, but each finger is a 'one-handed weapon'. See? There are no less-than-one-handed weapons; even the fingertip dartguns are 'one weapon'.

maybe with small Magnets at the Tip that repel each other ?

No, a powerful static charge so they repel each other like your hair? biggrin.gif Hahaha.

You want your off hand as far away from the whip as possible.

Nah, you want to be ambidexterous and have four more whips in that hand. 8 monofilament attacks a turn FTW! spin.gif

To attack multiple targets, you don't need multiple weapons. All you have to do is split the dice pool. So functionally speaking, one monowhip in your hand is as good as four.
Yerameyahu
Functionally speaking, 1 is *vastly better* than 4. biggrin.gif Given that you can't use 4 like thatů

Except with four you could theoretically make four attacks on the same target.

it does give "giving someone the finger" a completely new meaning though . .
