Projectiles are weapons that are thrown by the player during combat.
Projectiles are used in both Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Revolver, with different weapons available in each game. Thrown weapons do not use ammunition, rather the player can carry a limited number of each type of thrown weapon. Some thrown weapons can be retrieved by looting a target while others cannot be retrieved once thrown.
