A spear is a physical weapon that allows the user to usually strike an enemy at a distance. Larger spears such as lances, can require a mount to use, while others, like a javelin, are meant to be thrown at the target. Spears typically have a longer range than swords but shorter than guns and other powered projectiles. Some spears were used as a weapon with a shield so a person could have a good defensive and offence.
