    @max18400 I didn't know about the petition. Well that should attract their attention. Good to know that. Thanks, Max

    The had the choice of adding the one handed swords and replayability to their game or adding bugs.
    They've chosen the bugs.
    But more seriously, dont complain: you have flails and two handed weapons. Totally anachronistic along with all the modern political correctness.

    Yes during that time period there were 2 handed swords. There have always been 1 and 2 handed swords during the time period. The reason they left them out is because Vikings were known to use the most powerful weapons which means they would prefer 2 handed over 1 handed weapons. The only 1 handed weapons they used is the axe because they were sent to the afterlife with them.

    @leoraptor1979 that is not true. At all. Sorry. Two handed swords didn't exist until the 13th century. Its a well known historical fact. They used axes, spears, seaxes and one handed swords. If anything, theybpopularised using axes in warfare. There are is so much evidence supporting this. There is absolutely no evidence, archaeological or historical that the vikings used two handed swords, flails or war hammers. There's more evidence that wealthier vikings used one handed swords over most weapons. You can look at viking warrior graves in Ingleby and Repton in the UK to show this as they were buried with their swords (which were one handed)
    I've literally spent five years of my life obtaining two degrees on the subject of the viking age and specifically warfare so I do actually know what I'm talking about and I'm sorry to say what you're saying is just not true.

    @max18400 Yeah, it is an issue a lot of people have complained about, but this is like the Umpteen millionth post about one handed swords.

    @max18400 It's really hard to ignore such an amount of posts and threads regarding this topic. I mean there were already topics regarding the one-handed swords even before the game was released. Let's hope that Ubi will add them within the upcoming patches

    @max18400 where was it acknowledged by Ubisoft? I'm interested to see what they said about one handed swords.

    @texastoast712 one of the earlier posts about it. They said they appreciated players concerns and will pass on to the dev team to add them and more historically looking armor

    The thought process at Ubisoft completely baffles me.

    @ghost416 yeah, it doesn't make sense. Although, in their defence, I do think they were pressured to release the game in time with the next gen consoles, thus rushed/over looked many basic features

    It's like they learned nothing from Shieldgate.

    @ghost416 thing is, they actually had an narrative and gameplay excuse for not having shields (whether you agree with it or not is largely up to you). Lack of swords... There is no excuse. They're a popular weapon throughout the series and make sense historically having them in the game. They also clearly coded them in to the game and for whatever reason, decided to cut them.

    It makes me wonder if this is why they added the skill that allows two-handed weapons to be dual wielded... solely for the lack of 'one-handed' swords. They said they wanted to limit the amount of loot in the game, so they came up with this solution. I doubt we'll see one-handed swords just as we never saw shields in Odyssey even after numerous complaints.
