Chinese officer swords were dress swords issued to People's Liberation Army officers during the Sino-American War. These weapons made their way to the United States, where they can be found following the Great War.
Chinese officer's sword[edit | edit source]
A straight, double-edged blade with an ornate pommel and handguard. Swords found in the Capital Wasteland have markings along the blade, while those found elsewhere do not.
Jingwei's shocksword[edit | edit source]
A unique Chinese officer's sword issued to General Jingwei during the Battle of Anchorage, the blade is electrified and shocks targets struck by it. While weapon smiths in the Commonwealth and Appalachia have modified standard Chinese officer's swords with electrified blades, Jingwei's shocksword has electrodes embedded within the blade while the modified swords have external power sources attached to the handguard.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The Chinese officer sword is based on the traditional Chinese jian sword.
- In Fallout: New Vegas, an enlarged, non-playable version of the Chinese officer's sword can be seen behind Elder McNamara's desk. It is part of a large Brotherhood of Steel symbol which consists of a sword offset from two interlocking gears.
- This weapon is in the files of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
