I had a discussion with a friend a few days ago about which is better/cooler:
a sword or a gun.

I naturally liked swords over guns(because of the history and art behind them). However, he believed swords are useless and that guns are overall superior. Just out of curiosity, I would like to know what all of you prefer, swords or guns(swords as in any form of blades such as daggers, knives etc. and guns refers to any kind of firearm).

Firearm and Basic weapons all require skill, but when it comes to Basic skill since it's usually not a 1Hit K.O. you need more skill and training, but when it comes to firearms all you need is speed and accuracy.

What I'm saying is Basic Weapons are cooler.

i like swords/ blades better than firearms from more than one standpoint though i do enjoy the occasional rifle shooting. in the end, the better weapon all comes down to how the person using it wields the weapon.

Edit: remind me to never get you mad zeta. o_0

incidentally i have a good number of knives myself

Situation takes part too in battles (If you are fighting in a open, grassy plain or a dark, claustophobic warehouse full of cover to hide in). I like guns, it is something about their design that appeals to me.

Guns, whether it's pistols or rifles, I can't get enough : P

Although, Swords make for some excellent fights, there's just something about two squads opening fire on one another.
BTW, this should have a poll.

While swords do look awesome, I think guns are better.

1) Keep a safe distance
2) Cleaner shot.

I really really like swords...maybe I'm just "old fashioned" like that.
They're really pretty, and guns are just.....evil. XD

Call me old fashioned but I prefer any sword over any gun any day of the week. Guns are so impersonal and easy to use. You can kill someone you don't even know for a long distance away with a gun which is horrible. With a sword you need a lot more skill and training and when fighting it becomes a lot more complex that shooting. It seems a lot more personal that way too.

In short, swords are an honorable way of fighting for the most part, guns are definitely not.
