Hello, I am new here, and new to RPG Maker as a whole, I was wondering what the weapon icons mean? These are the base icons you start with in RPG Maker MZ, as I know. I do know that some of them represent a knife, sword, flail, axe, whip, staff, bow, crossbow, gun, claw, glove, nunchucks, slingshot, rifle, chainsaw, rapier, book, scythe, and scimitar. I do not know what the rest of the weapon icons mean, so I was wondering if anybody could help me with knowing what they are supposed to represent? I'd appreciate it.:LZSsmile: Sorry if someone had already posted something like this before.

I read the icons between "glove" and "nunchucks" as scepter (or maybe spear), staff, wand, and club. Then, of the ones on the second row you did not list, in order I see a heavy sword (or broad knife or machete), kama/sickle (unsure about this one), another revolver, a "blast"-type spell, and a "ray"-type spell.

It doesn't apply to most of these weapon icons, but definitely don't be afraid to fudge what you're representing with the icons in general (especially the more abstract ones). The one I described as heavy sword/knife/machete is a good candidate for such fudging. Mainstream games do this quite often, such as this icon from WoW which has variously represented both rings and belts.

+1 to this.
It's your game, so interpret the icons however you want.
I definitely recommend getting a large icon pack though so your creativity has a little bit more room to breathe. Here's a free one which comes with so many icons your head will spin:
