Broken glass exists in two forms, broken bottles and shards. Shards are commonly used as a crafting material, due to their sharpness and ease with which they can be found. They can be used to make shivs, spears, and arrowheads.

All varieties of broken glass cause minor bleeding wounds and possible bruising, when used as a melee weapon. Their fragile nature means they will break after only a few hits.

Shards can be used as improvised melee weapons, although very fragile and posing the threat of wounding the user. Shards can be used to craft a shiv, which is less likely to hurt the person wielding it.

Broken bottles are sometimes better at warding off foes than actually damaging them. They have an extremely low durability. A single use in battle or crafting is enough to shatter them permanently. This is an exception to the usual way tools work in recipes. Shards degrade 25% per use, while shivs degrade 20% per use.
