Weight depends upon gravity. But force does not. You can have you have hit the wall with "full force" but not "full weight". So force can be in any direction.
But another point is, force will increased when the gravity gets added to it. I mean force of a small bolt falling from 10 meters height is much more heavier than its weight.
Hope you understood.
