A harpoon is a barbed spear with an attached rope 50 feet or less in length.

Benefit: If you are proficient in the harpoon, it is a grappling weapon. A harpoon’s weight includes the weight of 50 feet of hemp rope. It can be reduced by using shorter or lighter rope.

Ultimate Combat: The harpoon presented in Ultimate Combat is a bronze age weapon and therefore also has the fragile weapon quality.

Pirates of the Inner Sea: A more modern harpoon appears in Pirates of the Inner Sea. It uses the same stats as its bronze age counterpart, but is made out of steel and therefore does not have the fragile weapon quality.
