Beat is a special attack where, if successful, the attacker beats aside the weapon of the victim. This does not do any damage, but instead costs the victim some action points, in the same way feint, trip, and shove do. It may also make the target easier to hit. The target must be holding a weapon in order to prepare this attack. Fighting.special.weapon is used to prepare and execute this attack, and presumably fighting.melee.** is also used in the execution (this could be confirmed by mock) .
