Two-Weapon Fighting

If you wield a second weapon (but not a shield) in your off hand, you can get one extra attack per round with that weapon. You suffer a –8 penalty with your regular attack or attacks with your primary hand and a –8 penalty to the attack with your off hand when you fight this way. You can reduce these penalties in two ways:

• If your off-hand weapon is light, the penalties are reduced by 2 each. (An unarmed strike is always considered light.)

• The Two-Weapon Fighting feat lessens the primary hand penalty by 4, and the off-hand penalty by 4.

Double Weapons: You can use a double weapon to make an extra attack with the off-hand end of the weapon as if you were fighting with two weapons. The penalties apply as if the off-hand end of the weapon were a light weapon.

Thrown Weapons: The same rules apply when you throw a weapon from each hand. Treat a dart or shuriken as a light weapon when used in this manner, and treat a bolas, javelin, net, or sling as a one-handed weapon.
