Background[edit | edit source]
A grimy Chinese straight sword with a leather and bronze hilt. It was wielded by Chinese officers before the Great War.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Chinese officer sword has a medium swing speed and weighs 3 pounds. It is useful for dealing with melee enemies with heavier weapons and can be extremely effective when used by a high strength player character. The weapon can be modified with either a serrated blade (causing bleeding damage), an electrified blade (causing energy damage), or both.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The sword found in Bradberton is a reference to the Dark Souls series, as lighting the bonfire will cause several stimpaks to fall. Once the sword is drawn, some more stimpaks will appear around the bonfire (if one hasn't lit the bonfire before pulling the sword, a small fire will appear where the sword was inserted).
