A Weapon is an item in Starbound used by the Player to inflict damage.

It has been confirmed that weapons will be procedurally generated. Developer Tiy posted that "There are literally millions of weapon combinations." 

Weapons will have different stat values that measure how effective they are. Listed possible stats are clip size, reload time, fire rate, damage per shot and bullet spread. Different classes of weapons will all have their own range of stats.

Weapons will have weapon mods that completely change how the weapon funtions. The types of weapon mods that can be used depends on the weapons rarity.   

Starting in the Solarium Tier ($1000 US), players that pre-order the game are given the opportunity to design their own weapon, which will be made functional by Tiy.
