The military pick is related to the crowbill, however, its large size requires that it be wielded with both hands. It is constructed primarily of two spikes at right angles to a long haft. Two-handed Weapons, such as the military pick, are weapons which require both hands to grasp, thus can not be used with a shield. The weapons which belong to this group resemble weapons from many of the other groups. However, there is a distinct difference in the sheer size and weight of these weapons. In general, two-handed weapons hit a great deal harder and do more damage than one-handed edged or blunt weapons. The trade-off is less defense offered by a shield.

To be proficient with the military pick it is strongly recommended that the user train in the two-handed weapon skill.
