There are several types of weapons in Westeros. They all fall into one of the following categories: Sword, Axe, Blunt, Polearm, Arrow or Firearm. There are also exotic weapons, mostly those designed and created in Essos or beyond.

The quality of a weapon matters. Because you are playing a member of a noble house, all starting equipment is of good quality unless otherwise stated. The higher the quality weapon, the harder it is to obtain through logistics and trade and the more expensive as well. All mustered weaponry is considered of ordinary quality.

In ranged weapons, poor quality weapons gain the Unreliable trait. If they already possess that trait, the weapon jams on any failed hit roll. Good quality weapons lose the Unreliable trait if they have it or gain the Reliable trait if they do not. If they already possess the Reliable trait, no other effect takes place other than aesthetic ones. Best quality weapons never risk jamming or malfunctioning.

In melee weapons, poor quality weapons inflicts a -10 on all Weapon Skill tests made with it. Good quality weapons grant a +5 bonus to all Weapon Skill tests made with the weapon. Best quality weapons grant a +10 bonus to all Weapon Skill tests made with the weapon as well as increasing the damage it deals by 1.
