I don’t understand why they don’t add this option. Title says it all. The only reason right now to build a stone spear is to activate bear traps.
I feel like we could use a little more love for lower tier like the bone knife and wood/stone spear. The worst part about trying to get new people to play this game with me is that nobody wants to spend 30 minutes chasing animals to be able to make a sleeping bag and meet up with friends. I would love it if we could throw the spear by secondary attacking so that you actually have a chance at catching the insanely fast animals.
I think it would add a whole lot more enjoyment to the early game and pvp if the equipped spear could be thrown and picked back up again, with a small chance of it breaking like with arrows.
Plus imagine how awesome it would be to see low level raiders using more than just the bow all the time.
