Nerd-boy's Battlegear implements an entirely new weapon system to minecraft. Pressing the 'I' button or clicking your player character in the Inventory screen will bring up the Weapon Inventory Screen.
Weapons can be placed in the main hand or off hand slots. These weapons will be displayed on your player model when you go into 3rd person view. Weapons can be switched between sheathed and drawn by pressing the 'R' Key
Items displayed in the following table are able to be placed in the weapon slots. There is an option in the config file to allow the use of weapons from other mods.
When dual wielding 2 swords the player can block as normal by pressing both mouse buttons.
