The PUNCH (verb) is a dual purpose verb used for combat and roleplaying.

Punch is one of four unarmed combat attack commands. Punch is a quick (base roundtime 3 seconds), medium damaging strike that has a lower chance of gaining the next combat tier than jab attacks.

Punch can also be directed at players or inanimate objects.

Warning: PUNCHing another player is only player friendly when initiated from guarded or defensive stance.
