Needles (니들, needeul) are one of the most common weapons in the Tower


Needle Vol.2 Ch.42

A needle

Needles are thin-spiked weapons, generally used to pierce and stab. An example of a very powerful Needle is the Black March, although it has been made clear it is not the strongest needle.

One reason the needle is the most basic weapon in the Tower is that piercing and thrusting attacks receive less shinsoo resistance, and are technically better adapted to move in Shinsoo. Weapons such as sword will have to break through more Shinsoo due to having a greater surface area.[1][2]

Needles are commonly used by Fishermens[3] and Scouts[citation needed].
