What Kind of Weapons Did a Balrog Use?

From: Erik Tracy

The Balrog's main weapon was the "Whip of Fire" which resembled a a multi-tailed whip that flamed with fire. We know from the Silmarillion that the Balrogs of the First Age used other weapons which included black axes and maces. The Balrog which fought Gandalf on the Bridge of Khazad-dûm used both a whip of fire and a flaming sword.
