There are three different types of sword: Sabre, Cutlass and Broadsword. But what is the difference between them? This guide will tell you.
They're fast, but do little damage. They are good for quick kills, however, if you have bad timing, you will get "mistimed" every slash and cut which will deal alot less damage. To avoid mistiming your attacks, try not to press the 'ctrl' or mouse button too quickly.
Heavy, and therefore slow, but they do good damage. Going through all the combos can finish off most enemies you'll face.
Extremely heavy, but broad and powerful, and thus they can hit multiple enemies at a time all while maintaining a high attack power.
