Now I understand that the shishkabab is more powerful than Jingwei's Shocksword,but what is better overall,with damage DPS,repair,etc?
- Shishkebab is better, hands down, IF you have the perk that makes flame weapons deal more damage. It's also easier to repair, all you need to do is make a new one and then whichever is less damaged, use the other one to repair it; Jingwei's Shocksword requires the relatively rare Chinese Officer's Sword for repairs.

- Actually, the Chinese Officer's Sword is not as rare as you make it out to be, if you go to Moira Brown in Megaton or any other store that you can purchase weapons at regularly or if you go to a place where raiders are common you can find it relatively easily.
- The Shish definitely does have its downsides. There are only so many parts available to make them, and then you'll have to rely on merchants for repairs. To get the Shish up to its maximum power, you'll have to invest in the Pyromaniac perk, and not everyone would want to do that if they focus on things other than fire-based weapons. Without Pyro, they're about the same; however, some enemies might have resistance to fire (like the Enclave Hellfire soldiers), making Jingwei's sword more effective (I don't think there's an electricity resistance anywhere in the game). The glow of the Shish also hurts your ability to sneak, since it's, well, a flaming sword, making Jingwei's a better option for sneaky characters. They both have advantages and disadvantages, but I myself prefer Jingwei's or Jack (the Ripper). RolandVH 01:49, November 11, 2010 (UTC)
No disarm on Xbox?
I don't think it's possible to disarm enemies during the simulation in the Xbox 360 version of the game. I'm trying it right now, and I've tried it before, it isn't happening.--22.214.171.124 23:50, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
Bit late to reply now, but I managed it. I shot the sword from the General and took it, netting me two copies of the sword, one with an immense durability.
