A javelin is a light spear designed primarily for casting as a ranged weapon. The javelin is almost always thrown by hand, unlike the arrow and the slingshot, which are projectiles shot from a mechanism.
Tyson's javelins have three buttons on them.
- The first button causes the javelin to explode on impact, causing razor wire to shred the wheels of another chariot.
- The second button made a blunt, but very painful spearhead, designed to knock a driver out of the chariot.
- The third button made a grappling hook that could lock onto things.
