Default Loot-Weapons Question

How are opponent's Loot-Weapons squished? It doesn't seem like there is a way to actually squish them via a fight unless there is a specific action noted on a card. Is that correct?

I do understand the player can squish there own loot, but committing Loot-Weapons to a fight effectively zaps it and then returns it to your Hoard and unzapped during Warmup. Just want to be sure I'm interpreting this correctly.

Loot isn't typically squished in a fight. A player can choose to zap and squish his own loot (to make room for different loot) and some card abilities interact with loot.

Does that help?

Yes, thank you. And once a weapon is zapped during a fight, it returns to the Hoard (not Stash) zapped until your next turn or you have a card with an ability to unzap... correct?

The Ferrous Oxide Monster immediately came to mind as an example of how an opponent's card can squish your loot card.

Doesnít the loot take damage? If the monster has one power and the loot item has 1 defense, doesnít that squish the loot weapon? Because it was defeated.

Nope. Loot doesn't have life and doesn't take damage.

A loot's defense stops that much damage from getting to the Hero/Ally
