A pike need not involve metal at all. Lance or pike is just an extra-long
polearm. Maybe require fire to fire-harden the tip. Its mainly a way of
killing the knight's horse before his lance is in range. Unchivalric to go
for the horse but so what, its not a game to the peasants, some of them
actually get hurt.
What about the crossbow? The Pope banned it claiming it would be the end
of civilisation due to its being able to penetrate the knight's armour.
Although I thought the English (and probably Japanese too?) Longbow could
already do that?

It can be a modpack in the meantime.
