>only weapon you see all game is spears
>spears are so shit one guy literally starts collecting them under his arm while they're trying to kill him
You're not wrong, but videogames aren't true to reality and they did exist even if impractical, not including them is a huge missed opportunity to add variety to a game's combat.
>Actually using a kusarigama
>Not using tachi+tanto or two uchigatanas
wrong picture, my bad
He's just kneeling down so he can lift up all the spears at once with the wielders still holding them
Then he's gonna flip them into the air so they will land on the spears of his troops a few ranks back
The katana was primarily a dueling weapon/ornament and not very efficient on the battlefield. Samurai originally specialized in horseback archery, spears came into play as battles became more organized and bigger. There were other weapons used but they were mostly specialized and used by a limited number of soldiers.
Also spears and arrows are significantly cheaper to make, wars are expensive
Do you have any more any more sets like this? The same battle or moment painted from two or more different narrative approaches, I mean.
I don't think I do, but its a pretty common for some battles to get this treatment over time.
That battle was an important moment for the Swiss, so lots of nationalists have glorified it
Lowes skill floor are clubs blunt wepons
a spear is pretty versatile weapon just looke a bit for fight techniques like hema and stuff
then an axe would be even better?
If you by any chance are a history buff that likes battles I hope you have heard of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Cochin_%281504%29
There should be a little arrow in the post >>323821062 besides the post number
Click it --> Image search --> Google
And take it from there.
Hang on a minute.
>used just as much for intimidation as for actual combat
>to increase this effect, some people would have their weapons lavishly decorated
>actually has a number of structural weaknesses and its effectiveness as a battlefield weapon is debatable
Was the katana the Desert Eagle of the day?
>This thing that's been passed down through non-hereditary means isn't a meme
You're really dumb, guy.
Skill floor =/= skill ceiling. I agree with you that spears have a lot of advanced techniques one can learn.
At its simplest, using a spear is simply pointing and stabbing. Especially so if you're in a formation with other spear users.
Pretty much, all you're missing is
> all police have one. Any infraction, even perceived, would result in instant death.
If that were the case then any time someone saw one of those guns there would be no insubordinance
That's a shit phalanx right there. This is how you get it done
Anyone remembers the name of that FPS where you could use modern guns on the roman empire era or something? I remember seeing a webm years ago but i can't remember the name
I completely forgot about this. Always wanted to try it.
>tfw no longer own a ps2
But I guess I could emulate.
As long as it's not completely exaggerated. But I have played some Dynasty Warrior games before, so.
>kusarigama (鎖鎌?, "chain-sickle") is a traditional Japanese weapon that consists of a kama (the Japanese equivalent of a sickle)
literally peasant tier weapon with bonus damage versus rice
