Well, after looking through the handy-dandy documentation INCLUDED with
Circle, I found this in building.txt in the doc directory:

WEAPON (Type Flag 5)

        value 0: unused   <------------------------------  Look Right Here
        value 1: Number of damage dice
        value 2: Size of damage dice
        value 3: Weapon type for damage messages, one of:
                  0    hit/hits
                  1    sting/stings

While I currently believe that the best way to help a coder is to point them
in the right direction, I hope that by showing you what your looking for and
telling you where I got it, you'll take the initiative to read that (and
other included documentation) more thoroughly.

 I hope that that answers your question about it being unused.
