Actually the long bow may not have been decisive, although it certainly fits the narrative of the sturdy English soldiers using their humble weapons against the haughty French knights. But in fact the victory at Agincourt had more to do with the muddy condition of the field and the fact that the French essentially disabled themselves by pushing into too small an area, where they found it difficult to move, much less use their weapons, many of them slipping into the mud or falling when they tried to climb over their comrades. At that point the English soldiers, including some of the longbowmen, slaughtered the French with hammers and other unglamorous weapons. The longbowmen played their part, but not necessarily a decisive one.

shouldnt you be at a party somewhere getting drunk? instead of being on a quizsite, what if you accidentally learn some thing. Jetpunk is a dangerous place to wander around in, if you are looking for parties

I thought gauntlets were simply armor. Are they weapons in that the wearer can punch with them?

Go to a Renaissance Fair, have your buddy buy a gauntlet and put it on, ask him to punch you in the face with it. Come back and let us know what you think.

NO need for sarcasm on an honest query. In that case, a helmet could also be considered a weapon since your buddy can head-butt you. Which I wonder if he already has.

I guess but gauntlets were commonly used to inflict damage upon an enemy. I don't think helmets were until they invented American football.

Leonardo doesn't use Katanas, he uses Ninjaken swords, like a Katana but shorter, sturdier and straighter

I'm pretty sure on the back of my toy box from 1987 or whenever it said katana. Same as the instruction book in the video game. and Wikipedia alternately claims that he uses ninjato or katana.

It's possible that the weapons depicted are more properly ninjaken, but in-universe they've consistently been called katana for some 35 years now.

I thought this too. Knew it based on weapon description, but didn't occur to me until later that Michelangelo referred to the ninja turtle. It's a great mental image, though, picturing Michelangelo Buonarotti up on the scaffolding in the Sistine Chapel, crouched over and throwing around nunchaku, muttering to himself about angels trapped in marble.

"throwing down the gauntlet" is a saying that means challenging someone to a duel. Gladiators didn't even come to mind, I think the clue is fine for gauntlet

My first thought on the armored glove was cestus. Gauntlet to me always said protective armor. While a cestus was designed to inflict damage. I got it after a second, but could cestus be accepted?

got everything except Blaster (only saw Star Wars once and this was 10+ years ago) and Longbow (did't really understand the question). OK, I had to google translations for "Mistgabel" (pitchfork) and "Pfahl" (stake). Pretty proud of that for a german. :)
