Throwing weapons are not allowed by all playing groups because they tend to have erratic results even from skilled pitchers. Some groups will allow
throwing weapons limited to spherical foam only objects. (i.e. Nerf soccer balls) This prevents injury as well as adds some interesting combat
experiences. Throwing weapons can exist in several forms from the basic rock to the complex javelin. Each weapon type is thrown a different way.
It's important to know how far you can throw and how accurate you are at certain ranges. You will quickly find yourself weaponless if you aren't
careful about your accuracy.
Rocks are very basic in design and implementation. They are only average when it comes to gripping because they are often large and oddly shaped.
Rocks are mostly accurate when it comes to throwing depending on the material used to make them. If a very light foam is used they will have limited
range and be effected by the wind very easily. Heavier foam is better as the weight makes it more resistant to wind friction. To practice throwing
rocks you can set up a dummy target and begin throwing, or play a few rounds of dodgeball.
