Kusarigama (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason:
  • No HP
  • Is essentially the same as a the Kusari-Gama given on pg. 144-145 of the Dungeon Master's Guide, but with more power (original is 1d6) and the cost/weight of a spiked chain

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

A Kusarigama has reach, so you can strike opponents 10 feet away with it. In addition, unlike most other weapons with reach, it can be used against an adjacent foe.

You can make trip attacks with the Kusarigama. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the chain to avoid being tripped.

When using a Kusarigama, you get a +2 bonus on opposed attack rolls made to disarm an opponent (including the roll to avoid being disarmed if such an attempt fails).

You can use the Weapon Finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a Kusarigama
