Penetration
Counters Armor Thickness to determine how effective a strike is, as a percentage of the weapon's maximum Dmg. The penetration value is a priority when choosing what weapon to bear against a particular foe.
Speed
This is the interval between attacks. A lower value is a faster weapon. The value is added to the total from other considerations like attack stance, encumbrance, and fending off multiple assailants. The rules of combat in Darklands are not fully understood. With melee weapons, speed appears to be subject to movement, staggering, and other assorted randomness. It's possible to land a chain of blows with a slow weapon. Whereas for missile weapons, the speed is the exact cooldown time.
Minimum Strength & Skill
These are not literal requirements to equip a weapon. Instead, they determine if the attacking character gets attack bonuses, which gradually increase over the minimum, or penalties, which sharply increase below the minimum.
