VERY tough for me. I prefer melee combat (even more so prior to Halo 5) and I think both are fantastic weapons. These days the hammer beats the sword lunge but I feel like you can't go wrong either way. The sword also has a lot less juice but superior movement speed. I think I still might go with the hammer. Its ability to trash anything it hits is what sells me on it. The sword can really damage vehicles as well but it needs to hit them directly and it can only attack one target at a time. It is so much more one dimensional.
[Locked] Hammer or Sword - Which do you pick?
