Weapon Suggestion: Rapier



  • Silly boys, this is no griffin. This is clearly a hippogryph.

    and on-topic:
    No, no rapiers. Rapier is strictly a duelling weapon for unarmored combat.



  • For a rapier to work in this game you would need a controllable wrist pivot point.
    It’s an interesting idea for a mod.

    That’s 300-400 years infront of the time period this game is set in. Most of this game is in about the middle-late 13th century. The latest weapon is probably the halberd which is was the late 14th century is when it started to get popular to counter enemy pike formations.

    And he rapier would be utterly useless. Its thinner than a dagger. The rapier could get through chain and thick studded leather without breaking itself. Let alone a comination of those and plate armour.

    The rapier became widely used by officers or higher wealths soldier becuase the amout of armour people wore was reduced a lot becuase matchlocks were becoming really popular. Chain mail tended to explode when hit by a musket ball causing a right mess in the victims chest and plate armour didn’t cope to well either tending to bend inwards making It really uncomfortable and usually it was penatrated by the musket ball leaving the sharp metal pointed inwards stabbing through whatever was underneath into the skin. If it was chain mail it would have exploded and if I was leather it would of cut through.

    And the person was usually winded or suffering from broken bones even if the round didn’t penatrated. Heavy armour became a hindernce. The rapier became popular becuase Eocene the lack or armour. It could actually do damage. Also very useful for duelling which was becoming more and more common. It wasn’t really a weapon to be used against anything except from a bayonet or another rapier.

    And I mean there is the sabre. It was a 12th century weapon.

    implying chivalry follows any actual timeline anywhere weapons are from all over the place

    sling is a weapon from 10,000 BC

    zweihander is from 14th century
    @BillDoor:

    The Saber acts as a rapier.

    sabers are usually about 3/4 the length of a rapier, are single edged only and shaped. rapiers were long had complex hilt designs and were single, double edged and straight blades.

    go away billdurrhurr

    Slings were still used in the 16th century and 15th century by Native Americans to counter the heavily armored Conquistadors who crushed their empires. The slings which shot stones would crush the helmets and armor of the invading Europeans with ease.
    It was also used in Europe to some extent.

    Btw Brandistock was invented and used in the 16th century :) THAT’S NOT Chivalrous or medieval. So better say Brandistock instead of Zweihander when you’re trying to make a timeline point.



  • The rapier is for like gentlemen duels in the 16th century. Wrong time frame. Also its not a war weapon, simple armor owns the rapier. Also any heavy weapon would easily break a rapier on parry. That is somewhat like adding the 10 pace single shot duel gun to call of duty.

    It just doesn’t say age of knights.

    Dont add anything made after guns came into effect….

    p.s. The rapier is dainty and only exists because guns eliminated armor. How about we add a modern marine combat knife too? (sarcasm)

    For the record he means

    Griffith, his sword is not exactly a rapier btw.

    Slings do not do any damage to plate armour. It’s stupid to think they would.

    I suggest you stop embarrassing yourself with your astounding ignorance.

    ''The sling was used for hunting and warfare. One notable use was in Incan resistance against the conquistadors. These slings were apparently very powerful; in 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, historian Charles C. Mann quoted a conquistador, who said that an Incan sling “could break a sword in two pieces” and "kill a horse."

    ‘‘By the Middle Ages the shepherd’s sling was largely militarily used even outside the Iberian peninsula, where the Spanish and Portuguese infantry favoured it against light and agile Moorish troops; a sling projectile, while dangerous even against an armoured opponent, could be lethal against a light and unarmoured foe. The sling continued to be used in sieges and the sling was used as a part of large siege engines.’’
