Hey, good sword you have. What is it, a long, sharp piece of metal? Hm, I guess that's great. It doesn’t turn into a bunch of smaller fragments floating in the air and then reforming into a long, deadly blade at your command, but eh? Can’t you turn these fragments into a circle of thick metal teeth and send them to the enemy like a damn flak cannon? Nor can you enchant him with fire and turn him into a flamethrower?
Too bad. Then again, the sword, as nice as it may be, is not as pretty as the coolest video game sword ever made, called Shatterblade.
Shatterblade is a mod for the VR sword game simulator Blade & Sorcery, and it’s directly the most awesome sword I’ve ever seen in a game. The sword consists of fifteen fragments that, when connected, form a perfectly dead and fresh-looking sword. But the magic happens when these fragments are disconnected, as you can see in this video tutorial of the creator of the modification.
First, the fragments can be separated, but they keep the shape of your sword, giving you a very long range due to the gaps between them, perfect for attacking enemies that are just out of range. standard. And each of the 15 fragments can also be taken by the player and used as individual daggers. A particular fragment, when captured, will transform the weapon into a pistol. How many swords can do that?
Fragments can also form a circular shield to block incoming projectiles fired by your enemies. Better yet, you can also turn the fragments into a rotating toothed steel mass and then shoot them like a huge cloud of shrapnel. This is fantastic. And all those fragments will fly again and be transformed again into a singular leaf, a bit like in the Iron Man movies, where Stark's armor flies to pieces and is built around him.
You can also add some magic to Shatterblade depending on the spell you have equipped. When combined with a gravity spell, the fragments become a cannon of gravity. With a fire spell used to heat the blade, it becomes a legitimate flamethrower and a lighting spell can turn Shatterblade in an arch cannon.
There are so many interesting and exciting ways to use Shatterblade, which are a lot of fun to watch. And when everyone dies, your loyal fragments will turn into a sword again. This is a damn sword. You can search for Shatterblade in Nexus Mods.
