Not to be confused with Dual Scimitars
Scimitar is a Melee Slashing weapon that can be purchased from and sold to Big Al's Gun Shop.
The Scimitar was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.
The Scimitar has a stealth rating of 5.4.
The Scimitar is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds.
1,000 Scimitars will be restocked at Big Al's after being sold out. The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.
Some players equip a Scimitar or another slashing weapon with the Parry bonus in their melee slot to hamper an opponent's effectiveness with melee weapons. Scimitars and other slashing or piercing weapons with the Eviscerate bonuses are sometimes used in the opening turns of a long fight to cause more damage over the duration of the fight.
Players can gain weapon experience on Scimitars once the "CBT3870 Bachelor of Military Arts and Science" Education course has been completed. Scimitars and all slashing weapons gain a 20% damage boost from the "Sweeney's Revenge" 10* special at a Hair Salon.
Scimitars, along with all melee weapons, receive a 10% damage bonus from the "Drunken Master" 3* special at Pubs and Restaurants, and a 2% damage bonus from the completion of the "HIS2170 Medieval History" course.
The Scimitar is affected by all universal buffs such as the 1% damage boost from completion of the "BIO2350 Evolution" course or the +3 accuracy from the "Seasoned Poacher" 10* Zoo special.
