Bananas are highly common weapons used by various members of the CGSP community. While innocent and appealing (pun intended) in appearance, their use has been proven highly effective and convenient compared to other weapons that are harder to acquire.
While there are many different tactics that the attacker can use to make use of the banana, the most common method involves the person peeling the banana roughly half-way and then hitting and/or launching the banana at the target. While the impact does not cause much physical harm to the recipient, the explosion of banana-y goodness from the impact can disorient the target for quite some time. It can also delay their response as cleaning of the banana off of the victim's possessions can be a tedious task.
