Wielded by the commander of Chinese forces in Anchorage, General Jingwei. It is available only through the Operation: Anchorageadd-on. It can be repaired using standard Chinese officer's swords or Vampire's Edge. It electrocutes the enemy doing a damage of 2 per second for 5 seconds which overall results in 10 damage done. It deteriorates in condition fairly quickly. The sword is a cleaner version of the Chinese officer's sword with a blue electrical current running up the side and a small switch on the handle, possibly for turning the electrical current on and off.
The Shocksword is tied with the Shishkebab for the second most damaging melee weapon, right behind The Mauler (unless the player has acquired the Pyromaniac perk, in which case the Shishkebab becomes 50% more powerful).
Jingwei's Shocksword can successfully strike about 486 times from full condition before breaking.
The other location for this sword is right at the end of the simulation. You can obtain it by shooting it out of General Jingwei's hand and picking it up off the ground in the final fight of the simulation (see the Gary 23 glitch to be given a clear description on how to obtain the simulation version of this sword).
Another one is found in the testphil map by, carried by another Jingwei. Typing into the console "coc testphil" will teleport you inside a room containing another Jingwei. Walking around the area makes your character lose player controls. In this case, type enableplayercontrols 1 and you will be able to move around the cell.
Followers will not equip Jingwei's Shocksword, even if it has a higher damage rating than their default melee weapon. It cannot be reverse pickpocketed to a non-player character either. If you obtain a second copy from General Jingwei through the glitch, then followers will equip the version of the sword from the simulation.
To make things easier, the sword can still be shot out of Jingwei's hand if the player convinces him to kill himself through a speech challenge.
If the player looks at the blade near the base of the hilt, one can very faintly make out (with proper lighting) an upside down Soviet Hammer and Sickle emblem underneath what appear to be three faded five pointed stars, all of which are lined up in the fashion of the stars found on the Chinese officer's sword.
Playstation 3 While holding or swinging the sword will not ignite gas leaks, a hit on an non-player character or creature will. [verified]
