I take it Oi've never introduced you to a glass grenade, then. Ye need an old rum bottle with a screw top, an old bike tire, and a pump...


That be all Oi'm sayin' about that little nasty!

Don't forget the good ol' Molotov cocktails ("Mollies").
But avoid those glass mines, they are unpiratical and even considered heinous by non-pirates.

Provided there's an open flame on board, a pressured mollie-bottle can be a wonderful thing.

Oi know of one dastardly way of mining a rum jar that won't be getting mentioned here, for it's far too heinous. Messing with rum just isn't honourable-like.

I know some sorts of rum that could be used to fill a Molly. And if you use the rum bottle: simply don't empty it. Those sorts of rum are usually not worth drinking anyway.

Taunting be the pirate's best weapon, as that get's yer opponent within stabbing distance. Just be careful not to taunt too many at the same time, 'cause otherwise ye might not have enough hands to stab yer incoming victims with. And that might end unfortunate, unless you get creative.

Aye, taunting and a claymore mine work even better together!

Long weapons are problematic below decks. I still vote for the naginata with removable shaft. Can be used as spear, sabre, quarterstaff...

Claymore mine, not the sword; I suppose we could prepare one utilizin' fishheads for ammo. 'Tis a cleaver and fork for me below decks....

Oh, misunderstanding on my side, I probabyl read claymore of mine = my sword.

Btw, when has the clay pot filled with poisonous animals been used the last time as an assault weapon.?

Give them tickets, so they can go home by plane.

All ye need to sort out those Claymore mines is a pair of thermal goggles...well that's how you did it in Metal gear Solid!

Another (although heinous) weapon is a cloned Rethug catapulted onto the enemy deck. The moment he lands you shout "Be careful. Hillary nearby" through the megaphone. One problem: sometimes only the head explodes from increased blood pressure.
