The chakram is a beaten ring of metal, which can be thrown by a skilled individual. The smaller chakri could also be worn on the arms or wrists and used like knuckledusters. When worn on the arms the chakri could be used to break or cut the opponent's arms while grappling.

Light Thrown

A basic attack with a light thrown weapon uses your Dexterity. Light thrown weapons don’t deal as much damage as heavy thrown weapons, but some powers let you hurl several of them at once or in rapid succession.


A chakram is light enough that you can hold it and attack effectively with it while holding a weapon in your main hand. You can't attack with both weapons in the same turn, unless you have a power that lets you do so, but you can attack with either weapon.


If you miss with a ranged attack made with a chakram, you can catch it as a free action. If you do not wish (or are unable) to catch it, it falls at your feet in your space. A magic chakram teleports back to your hand with no action, or into a sheath or backpack you are wearing if you wish.
