Tips and tricks for using the Stone Spear
The Stone Spear is an effective all-around weapon that remains viable for most of the game. While much more deadly than a Weak Spear, it is still outclassed in terms of damage by spears made of bone, obsidian, or metal.

This weapon’s high reach makes it very useful for hunting and fishing, as it allows players to attack many animals at a distance they don’t consider threatening.
Thrown spears that strike a target in the head will often kill them outright. Throwing spears still relies on the Spears skill rather than the Throwing skill.
Spears can be used to perform a power attack by holding down the attack button before releasing. The longer an attack is charged, the more damage it will deal.
