Weapon people get, ignoring the odds (4)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'weapon' is the definition.
(epee is a kind of weapon)
'people get ignoring the odds' is the subsidiary indication.
'ignoring the odds' indicates alternate letters (letters in odd-numbered positions are removed).
The alternate letters of 'peopleget' are 'epee'.
(Other definitions for epee that I've seen before include "Sword in fencing", "Fencing sword similar to a foil", "Fencing weapon", "Fencing blade", "Duelling weapon", "Duelling blade", "Rapier", "Fighting blade", "Thin fencing sword" and "Sharp-pointed duelling sword".)
