Sabers are a new melee weapon type introduced in WeaponOut. These weapons are a variety of sword that centers around timed swings more so than normal broadswords, due to their instantaneous swings and their special mechanic, exclusive to Sabers: Charge Attacks.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Sabers are swords that slash in the direction the cursor is located, completing their swing almost instantaneously; use time determines how long it will take until the next swing begins. These weapons can be used similarly to traditional melee weapons or can have their swings timed to make use of their main feature: the aforementioned Charge Attacks.
Charge Attacks[edit | edit source]
Charge Attacks are special attacks unique to each Saber that can be performed by refraining from swinging for a certain amount of time. The player will receive both an auditory and visual indicator that their Charge Attack is ready; blue particles will surround the player and disappear when the Charge Attack is ready, and the mana blip sound effect will play. Upon the next swing, the Saber will use its Charge Attack, regardless of whether it comes into contact with an enemy or not. The Charge Attack of each Saber is unique, meaning each Saber will perform a different Charge Attack.
