—Gabber, Orc[3a]
Orc Choppa

Whatever an Orc’s other equipment, he will always have a Choppa. An Orc Choppa is a huge heavy blade, far too ungainly for a typical human to wield in one hand but capable of inflicting horrendous wounds.[1a]

Overview

Orc weapons are considerably more crude and far heftier than those of other races. The Orcs wield these weapons with such violent joy that they can turn their foes into a fine red mist long before their chopping arms get tired. Orcs call their weapons ‘choppas’ – it doesn't matter what type of weapons they are, they just get called ‘huge choppas’, ‘pointy choppas’, and so on.[5a]

Orcish weapons are crude things that rely less on keen edges and more on sheer mass. In the hands of an Orc, such weapons are incredibly deadly, able to bludgeon a foe into a bloody mess in very short order. Such a chunk of metal would be difficult for a human to wield in one hand, but Orcs are muscle-bound beasts with fists as big as a Man's head.[4a]

These brutal cleavers are nasty weapons indeed. Possessing a longhafted handle and a wide wedge-like blade, Orc choppas can cut through armour with ease. Only Orcs know how to use these weapons. All other races have difficulty managing their balance and weight.[2a]
