Vibrosword

Description[edit]

The Vibrosword is a larger version of the personal Vibroblade, a special type of melee weapon whose blade vibrates at an extremely high frequency, allowing it to penetrate both flesh and armor. Bulkier than a traditional sword the blade's vibration also creates a distinctive hum which can alert an attentive opponent. While difficult to find the vibrosword is a popular weapon, with DEST commandos carrying a variation known as the Vibrokatana. [1]
