    Versatile weapons?

    Is there a way to distinguish if a character is using their weapon versatile or not? I couldnt figure out a way to 'hot swap' between 1 handed or 2. So I told them to add the weapon a 2nd time and I set the damage according and added (Versatile) by the name so they can tell the difference.

    thanks!

    That's how I would do it. Longsword (1H) & Longsword (2H) as two different weapons with different damage calculations.

    I have always set them up as 2 weapons when I do NPCs. Just seems to make it easier that way and would probably work as well for PCs.

    There is no automatic way to do this so, yes, as suggested two entries in the actions tab. One of my players has a versatile weapon which does extra damage against undead and he also has the charger feat. So to cater for all possibilities he has eight entries for the same weapon

    I know this is an old post, but I can't find any more recent ones. I have the 5e Essential package (PH, DMG, etc.). Do I have to make a new item for the 2H option? I do not see in the list under weapons a second entry for Warhammer (2H).

    Any feedback or links to a more up to date tutorial on this would be great!

    Cheers.
