Brawl Weapons – Brawl weapons are simple, often easily concealed weapons that are worn on the hands as both a means of protection and a way to increase the damage of physical blows. While there are many kinds of brawl weapons in the galaxy, brass knuckles and shock gloves are the most common types available.
When using a brawl weapon, users add their Brawn characteristic to the damage dealt, unless the weapon description indicates otherwise. When a brawl weapon has its own stated damage, the inclusion of a plus sign next to the damage indicates that the user adds his Brawn to the damage dealt.
Also known as Knuckle Dusters.
From Age of Rebellion
Known colloquially as “knuckle dusters” in many locations, brass knuckles are little more than a set of thick metal rings worn on the fingers and welded to a horizontal bar held in the fist. They are the smallest, simplest, and easiest to conceal type of brawl weapon. Among the more civilized places of the galaxy, brass knuckles are looked down upon as the weapons of petty criminals, bounty hunters, and other undesirables. In fact, their possession or use is severely restricted or outright banned on many worlds. Due to their small size, brass knuckles are quite easy to conceal in a pocket, pouch, or compartment in easy reach until they’re needed.
From Edge of the Empire
Dirty fighters and those looking to protect their fists from the tough hides of certain alien species rely on metallic knuckles, gauntlets, or other hand or limb coverings. Hoodlums on some worlds refer to them as “negotiation enhancers.”
Another great advantage of brass knuckles is their ability to be concealed in a pocket or other compartment until they’re needed.
