A lot of your characters might have weapons they’re proficient at. Unless they’re already pros before the beginning of your novel, you might have to explain their training. This can be difficult, especially if you have absolutely no idea how to use that weapon.
I decided to link to a few articles/websites that might help you with your research. This is also useful if your character is constructing a weapon. Here are a few weapon basics—

Do you ever think about how Theon lifted a 35 year old woman who had 5 kids no prob and how much upper body strength it takes to properly use a war bow and how he was able to carry a girl through thigh-deep snow after months of torture and starvation and mutilation and then realize there was more than a mental strength to surviving Ramsay and THEN realize he’s even hotter and probably more cut than you first imagined he was?
Yep he was a creature of pure magnificence.
