Those blades were used prior to the creation of Energy Swords, but the shape could still be replicated.
That blade. Well they didn't use it because its to big and isn't small and portable as the Energy Sword.
That's not what he's talking about. This is what a Curveblade looks like.
Well if a energy sword was curved and if you stab him you can get the sword stuck inside them.
I don't believe those are canonically used as frequently.
Why not a Curveblade? They even have an ingame model for it.
They could perform charge and in the animation pull out an enemy sword, that would be more in keeping with elites, it just wouldn't be a one hit kill, same with ground pound, have them perform a slam with an energy sword.A few problems with that is that not all Sangheili would have an energy sword on them, and if they did, it would normally be an insta-kill.
With energy daggers however (picture), it's not always an insta-kill, unless it's in the back. And from what I've noticed from Reach, a majority of Sangheili, regardless of rank, wield them.
What he said. They've got to be more traditional/training related now and obviously inferior to their other available weaponry. Wouldn't be very practical as an ingame weapon but it does remind me of the people who used to request a UNSC sword...
Um I follow this thread but never get any notifications for it. Dang I've returned to a lot!
Not sure what's up with the notifications really. This is the only topic I follow or even look at on this website and I do get the notifications, but it doesn't even say what the notifications are for when I check.
