Strategy

Tips

  • This weapon can be used to tearing down groups of enemies with its great damage.
  • The shield gives an armor bonus, use it when moving to reduce damage.
  • It has a slower swing speed than most melee weapons. Time your attacks precisely in order to maximize accurate hits.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Strife around while attacking to outmaneuver around enemies.
  • The burning effect can be used to deal additional damage against enemies, which could potentially kill them if their health is low enough.

Counters

  • Pick off users at long range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns make quick work of users.
  • When caught in a melee battle, try flanking around the user and attack them from their sides.
  • When using an area damage weapon, aim at the ground.
  • Use high-damaging weapons to counter the Armor Bonus feature.

Trivia

  • LIke the Sword & Shield, the shield does add to the armor, but it does not reflect/stop bullets in any way.
  • The weapon is heavily inspired by Fallout 3's "Shishkebab" due to both being a sword being made up of old vehicle parts although the latter doesn't have a shield.
