2) This is a weapon, to use in extreme situations.
3) This is a weapon, to be used in extreme situations.
Is the punctuation in the above sentences acceptable?
Does the comma alter the meaning?
If yes, how does it do so?

that follows is additional information. I see two possibilities. Either
that part is added as an afterthought, or it is implied that all weapons
are for use in extreme situations.
4) This is not a toy. It is a weapon, for use in extreme situations.
Would you say that is correct?
