Artem Posted May 16, 2005 Share Posted May 16, 2005 Ok, other then gameplay wise, let's just assume this: Blaster Rifles are like bullets, they are usually one hit kill or if some soldier has nice armou a couple hits (even the stormtroopers had armour, they got knocked out/killed in one hit). Now in the game it makes sense that a non-Jedi character has a sword because so they can defend themselves close range, but other than fighting against Jedi, why do they carry around Vibroblades? It doesn't make sense. If Blaster Rifles are like bullets, then why in RL don't we see people carrying swords either? Now you might say it's to counter Jedi, but aren't Jedi mostly extinct now? and even BEFORE, why would ordinary thugs carry them to fight a group of a few thousand? Now, some of the swords like maybe those short short stun sticks are realistic, but other then Hanharr who can "shrug" away a blaster fire, what are the point of Vibroblades? The biggest thing I don't understand, is why do ordinary soldiers have them? Hey it's POSSIBLE that some thug would want a Vibroblade, maybe, but a soldier? I mean, using the era's logic, in RL the soldiers should all have back-up medieval swords in close quarters(yeah they have bayonets and knives, but thats WAY different). So other than for gameplay sake (and I'm NOT arguing there! perfectly realistic for gameplay sake) can anyone explain to me, using the SW Era why they would use Vibroblades when a blaster, just like a pistol in real life, can still work in close quarters?
