Weapons in Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition are used to improve damage dealt to enemies. These could be Swords, Bowes, Staffs, Axes, Maces, Shovels, Rods, Sticks and almost anything you can wield. Weapons can have charms and enchantments added to them to complement your skills used in combat. You can get weapons through random loot, through Boss-drops, trading with NPCs and even crafting!
Not as strong as Two-Handed Weapons, but can be used with a shield.

For those who like to keep their distance.
