Weapon Damage Based on Size Change

Wiki Home > General Rules > Weapon Damage Based on Size Change


There has been some discussion on the Paizo forums regarding how damage values change when a creature increases or decreases it’s size or for larger creatures using weapons. A FAQ has been requested by users. Until the results of that FAQ request have been returned, we will use the following guidelines for weapon damages based on size changes.

To use the table below, first select the column that represents the weapon’s normal size. Next, find the current weapon damage. Lastly, step horizontally to the right or left depending on whether the creature is increasing or decreasing in size. The result is the new damage.

If the weapon’s normal damage is listed in the column more than once, use the row that is closest to the top of the table.

Note that the table below follows the rulebook as closely as possible, but not all values are listed in the rulebook. These values are the ones that are extrapolated.
