How to Use the Energy Sword
Basic Stats Overview
|Energy Powered Melee Weapon||8-10 Kills||Plasma||N/A||N/A|
The Energy Sword is a Plasma Powered Melee Weapon which has been used by the Covenant Empire since Halo: Combat Evolved. There are many different types of the Energy Sword, such as the Bloodblad which is a red colored Energy Sword primarily used by the Special Operations Sangheil. However, only the traditional blue one is currently available in Halo Infinite. This Weapon is an extremely powerful melee weapon to the casual Spartan, but you can find yourself controlling the battlefield for the majority of the game. The Energy Sword or the Gravity Hammer can be found on several maps, such as Recharge.
Strengths of the Energy Sword
One of the main strengths of the Energy Sword is that it can decimate most opponents, but you may find some trouble when coming head to head with other Energy Sword or Gravity Hammer Players. As the Energy Sword is a Melee Weapon you’ll want to make sure you have something like the BR75 - Precision Rifle equipped so you can bait them with a regular weapon and switch at the last minute to the Energy Sword for an easy kill. Also, you don’t want to be running around with the Energy Sword, as the other team will most likely focus on taking you down.
Weaknesses of the Energy Sword
Although the Energy Sword can one shot opponents you’ll notice it’s biggest weakness comes with trying to close the gap. However, if you get close enough the Energy Sword will pull you towards the opponent. There’s a few methods to closing the gap, such as running towards the enemy in a zigzag pattern to avoid giving an easy headshot or you can use the Grappleshot Equipment to pull you closer. Another Weakness of the Energy Sword is that it’s only useful for close quarters combat, so you’ll want to have another weapon like the MA40 AR - Assault Rifle to deal with enemies from afar.
