How can one enhance an unarmed striker?

Both D&D 5e Magic Weapon spell and Psionic Weapon (Mystic 3 Unearthed Arcana) only enhances a "weapon" and "Unarmed Strikes" apparently does not count as weapons.

What can I do? Any ideas I can think of to use for examples I cant post cause it will be flagged "make separate post since these seems to be different questions" though it still pertains to the original question.

    \$\begingroup\$ No, it's fine to include examples that directly demonstrate what you're asking about. Just make sure they are directly demonstrating. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Apr 11 '17 at 1:01

    \$\begingroup\$ Jhyarelle, please edit that info, and any other requirements as mxyzplk suggested, into your question. We're not mind readers. If we don't know what specifically you're looking for then you are going to get answers that aren't helpful to your situation and we may not even be able to help you at all. \$\endgroup\$ – Purple Monkey Apr 11 '17 at 2:12

Play a Monk

Unarmed strikes are the raison d'être of the Monk class. The damage they do scales with level, you can make an extra unarmed strike as a bonus action, you get extra attack at 5th level, they count as magical at 6th level, you can use Ki points in various ways to enhance their effectiveness.

    \$\begingroup\$ @JhyarelleSilver what is a "solo class"? \$\endgroup\$ – Dale M Apr 11 '17 at 2:08
  • \$\begingroup\$ @JhyarelleSilver so you mean not multi-class? If so then a single class monk fits your question perfectly. \$\endgroup\$ – Dale M Apr 12 '17 at 0:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ The build is a level 12 UA Mystic with the Order of the Immortal archetype. Who just happens to be brawler combat wise with Tavern Brawler feat already in the mix. NVM, next question might help. \$\endgroup\$ – Jhyarelle Silver Apr 13 '17 at 2:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @JhyarelleSilver and where would I find that rather critical information in your question? I am perfectly happy that this is a good answer to the question you asked. If it is not an answer to the question you didn't ask that would be because you didn't ask it. \$\endgroup\$ – Dale M Apr 13 '17 at 3:14
