Since Public Beta 25, a new combat system has been included in the mod as an attempt to make it more realistic.
Two new weapon characteristics have been added: Melee Speed and Melee Reach:
- Melee Speed controls the rate at which you can strike at a target. The basic fist strike (empty hand) has a rate of about 0.80 sec per strike (or 1.25 strike per sec). This is equal to a speed of 100%, and is the same as the sword strike. Other weapons have a higher or slower Melee Speed, as shown in the table below.
- Melee Reach changes the strike range of a melee weapon. The basic fist strike (empty hand) has a reach of about 2 blocks. This equals to 100%, and is the same as the sword strike. Other weapons have a higher or lower Melee Range, as shown in the table below.

Summary of ranged weapon characteristics Edit
Here is a rounded estimate of ranged weapons. The damage for each weapon type was obtained by creating an average of damage for each weapon type.
|Name||Damage Bonus||Draw Back Time||Range|
Slings, Conkers, Exploding Termites, and Plates can be thrown as quickly as the player can right-click, to a maximum of four throws per second. Throwing axes can in theory be thrown this quickly too, but in practice, the speed at which a player can throw axes is limited by how fast they can switch between hotbar slots.
