Damnit, when I saw Legion Sword, I expected a longsword similar to that of an Oblivion sword. That would've been awesome.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 01:30, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
- Haha, sorry about that. It was either Legion Sword or Falcata. You've still got the Scrap Sword, or Bumper Sword as it's now called for some reason. --Volundarkvioa 01:34, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
The broad term used for such swords is makhaira, of which the falcata is only one example. The sword was also never used by the Roman legions, but instead by their enemies against them. The new section reflects this. Mictlantecuhtli 15:22, September 8, 2010 (UTC)
it doesn't actually resemble any of those swords listed not a falcata not a makhaira or any of those things. it's just a leaf shaped daggar.
- Makhaira is the historical name for any weapon with that type of blade. Mictlantecuhtli 09:26, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
That Legion Sword looks more like a Kukri then anything, I'm still holding out hope for a true sword however. ReinbachThe3rd
- Exactly my thought! It's pretty close to a Khukri except of the crossguards. As most of the weapons that count to the category of Makhaira (ancient swords with a backward curve) have either a much broader blade or this distinctive hook-shaped and connected hilt maybe it should be mentioned on the article. And it's definetely no dagger, as the Machete Gladius obviously is designed for cutting and not for stabbing. xNOKIx 08:28, April 4, 2011 (UTC)
Speaking of waiting out for a true sword, is anyone else disappointed at the fact that the only 'sword' is the Shiskebab, or the Gladius? Just seems a let down personally, seeing as how I was hoping to pick up a officer'sword. --"If war doesn't change, men must change, and so must their symbols." 01:43, September 25, 2011 (UTC)
is it just me, or does this sword look a hell of a lot like the spartans short sword? —Preceding comment was unsigned. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Can it really be found in the Caesar's Legion safehouse? I am playing 1.02 and am on xbox 360. I find a chainsaw, sniper rifle, and a displacer glove but not a machete gladius. Forgot to sign that Xarxes 16:50, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
- Went ahead and checked; I only found a chainsaw, a sniper, the time bombs, and the displacer glove. No machete. Removing. Nitty Tok. 03:52, December 25, 2010 (UTC)
Specific Locations PLEASE?![edit source]
When you put things like "sometimes carried by the Legion soldiers at Fortification Hill", "sometimes carried by the Legion soldiers at Cottonwood Cove", and "carried by Legion Centurions sometimes" can you either tell several things like for example "Locations of the Machete Gladius are as follows: Rare Chance on "insert npc name here", commonly on "insert npc name here", and always on (blank)? Instead of saying that ANY general member of the Legion at the Fort or Cottonwood Cove may carry them? Characters in those areas include: Recruits, Primes, Veterans, Decanuses (however you spell that), Explorers, Praetorian Guards, Vexillarius, Legion Blacksmiths, Lanius, Vulpes, Caesar, Cursor Lucullus, Aurelius of Pheonix, Decanus Severus, Antony, Otho, Blake, the children, the Legion instructor, or any of the others I might have missed in that giant list. So please for the love of Christ be specific.
