These weapons can effect each and every hit your character makes in battle. If you purchase a +2 weapon, then you get +2 damage to every hit you make. This does not include your specials. So if you have 31 Combat and have a +3 weapon, then you would do 7 damage with every hit!
You may only buy 2 of these weapons. Their bonuses stack. You may call these weapons anything you wish that relates to your character. Punisher can have a +2 Rifle, while Wonder Woman can have a +4 Lasso. Even if you character doesn't use weapons, you can purchase a +3 Fist or +3 Claws.
You may upgrade these weapons any time you wish to a maximum of +5 by paying the difference. If you already have a +1 weapon, you may pay 100 more dollars to upgrade it to a +2 weapon. If you have a +4 weapon, you can spend 100 dollars to upgrade that to a +5.
Armor can effect each normal hit your character takes in battle but at the cost of your character's speed.

An attack will always do a minimum of 1 damage. Likewise a player's Speed can never be reduced to less than 1.
You may call the armor anything you wish that relates to your character. Punisher can have a +2 Kevlar Vest, while Wonder Woman can have a +4 Bracer. Even if you character doesn't use armor, you can purchase a +3 Energy Field or +3 Shirt.

Unlike weapons, specialty enhancements do not damage your opponent, rather they can disable them or have other effects on them. Specialty enhancements may also help out your own character in various ways during battles.
