Weapons in dreams appear for numerous reasons. They are associated with aggression and hostility towards someone, perhaps you. They can be a warning that you need to take defensive action against something or someone that poses a real threat to you. They may also represent a secret desire within you to hurt someone.
If you dream of using a weapon against someone, do you harbor hidden anger and aggression that you have not expressed in waking life? If you do not know the person you are attacking, your weapon and victim may be symbolic representations of aspects of yourself you do not like or find hard to deal with. You may have inner conflicts that need to be resolved, or ‘killed off’.
If so, what does your unknown victim look like, and how does he, she or it react to the threat? All this may provide you with important clues.
If you have a weapon used against you in a dream this may suggest that you have done something to upset people around you or it may be that you feel you have become the victim of circumstances.
If you are shot in the dream, this may be referring to internalized aggression, past hurt or a fear of being hurt.
According to Freud, almost every weapon is a phallic symbol and many dream researchers still subscribe to this view.

They may also suggest anxiety about sexual performance or an inability to express ideas confidently to other people.
If a work tool or other object is used as an offensive weapon, this suggests a skill or authority that has turned against you, as might happen if a teacher was taking advantage of a pupil.
