    As far as I know the main reason for "no shield" in Odyssey were related to lessons learned from Origins. If they implement shields, people go into "turtle mode", since they wanted to push for a more agressive playstyle in Odyssey, and less defensive than Origins, they removed the shields. This is the first time that I hear that the presence of the spear was the main reason.

    Where does the "swords were to expensive" explanation come from? If this is the official statement I agree - that's seems silly considering how many other npC's use swords.

    @aloninor not sure it's official but it's the one floating round for the time being and yeah origins forced defense play as you had to have the shield. With odessey they did want to make it more aggressive and the spear is the off hand and all times weapons so it just worked out in their favour I guess

    The 'too expensive' argument is what some people are saying on reddit, here, twitter. Its an absurd argument.

    @fruitloops3000 I'd like to get the real reason for no one handed swords from Ubisoft just to see why they did it

    @fruitloops3000 even if swords were expensive in this time periode, nearly every NPC used an one-handed sword. historical correct or not, it breaks the immersion that anybody can use a onehanded sword except yourself. So in my opinion thats no argument that would work. And through the finisher I have the feeling that I have killed more people with their own swords as with my own weapons.

    @fgx1988 it's is immersion breaking as you say and just a stupid move to remove a staple weapon in any Armoury from the player altogether

    slightly off topic: I hope the irony doesn't escape anyone on the fact that we can equip a shield an spear like a spartan in this one..
    but no one handed swords. I really wonder how their meetings go 🤷

    I know right! I thought that lol. I imagine the meeting goes like this;

    Game director: so guys what can we do better this time round?

    Goes quiet...

    Developer #4: we could have shields again. But this time use them in both 🙌.

    Game director: LOVE IT! Anything else?

    Developer #7: Maybe remove swords? This way it saves us making new animations.

    Game Director: [censored] genius! And maybe release them as Possible DLC. That will please the old share holders. Muhahaha!

    I think its a marketing thing (of unhealthy devious Ubitype). They will bring swords some time in the future with a big hype. With some other fundamental stuff, like playable PC sound.

    When you go back to heillboer where the opening part of the game happend, you can still see the sword stuck in the windowframe.
    Thing is you can take it 😊

    I've also started a post about this. If enough people make noise or complaints about it, hopefully they'll patch it in. It's nonsense not having a proper one handed viking sword in the game

    How long do we think if they decide to fix this it'll take?
