Incas weapons and armor

By Caleb Wunsch

Weapons

  • Estolica - Small, flexible spear thrower to throw projectiles (similar to the Aztec atlatl) were mostly employed by the jungle troops.
  • Slings (Quechua: huaraca) - Were composed of a regular-sized cord in which a projectile was placed (in this case, rounded stones). The projectile would be thrown with a circular movement of the huaraca.
  • Clubs (Quechua: chambi) - Wooden sometimes with spikes. Mostly used by southern nations.
