The Chain Whip is classified as a soft weapon, one which is jointed or easily bent. Most soft weapons are used as secondary weapons and employed only when the main weapon is disabled or lost. Because of their flexibility, they are easily hidden, commonly fastened to the back, the waist, or the arm and do not interfere with mobility during combat. Soft weapons are typically used for disabling an adversary. Although they may not have the killing potential and the efficiency of other weapons, they can be deadly when striking at sensitive areas and cause internal injuries.
