the guys next question : do swords run out of blades ?
User avatar #32 to #27 - Zarke (02/21/2013) [-]
Technically yes. They need periodic sharpening.
User avatar #34 to #27 - hardtuner (02/21/2013) [-]
they can run out of blades. if you sharpen it a lot, you can break the blade and you'll need a new sword.

Would a sword not get blunt or break? You could say that it has run out of ammo then
#6 to #4 - Shmooglavoue (02/21/2013) [-]
Guns can break or jam after repeated use too. All tools and weapons wear out after extended use, it's a different factor entirely.

Of course, the line about swords deflecting bullets is silly. Nobody could reliably deflect gun bullets with a sword in a combat scenario, bullets move too fast for a human to react to, nevermind the physical strain of being hit by bullet force repeatedly on the arms and the blade.

And that's a much more detailed argument than I need for responding to this post. I really should get back to work.

Sir, you forgot to include the anime factor in the second paragraph. Shame on you.

If it's blunt, club or stab them with it. If it breaks, shiv them with what's left.

I wouldn't say it out of ammo, but that it just broke

How about lightsabers

Lightsabers use energy cells made from crystals so they'd most likely run out of juice eventually.

"The components are fairly simple. Every lightsaber has a standard power source, the same type used in small blasters, even in glowpanels. They last a long time, though, because Jedi should rarely use their lightsabers." -Luke Skywalker

You are correct but they tend to last very long and since a lightsaber is an extension of a jedi's fighting style and thus very important they are well looked after and the power pack is changed regularly.

It needs energy, therefore it can run out of ammo.
User avatar #19 to #7 - croski (02/21/2013) [-]
If I'm correct it is channeling Jedi's (or others) force. So it kind of has ammo.
User avatar #30 to #19 - thetruepervysage (02/21/2013) [-]
you are wrong. It is a blade of pure plasma emitted from the hilt and suspended in a force containment field. The field contained the immense heat of the plasma, protecting the wielder, and allowed the blade to keep its shape.
User avatar #36 to #30 - croski (02/21/2013) [-]
But you need someones force to power it?
User avatar #37 to #36 - thetruepervysage (02/21/2013) [-]
It is a simple battery setup sorta thing.
The lightsaber mechanisms were contained within the hilt. High levels of energy generated by a high-output Diatium power cell was unleashed through a series of focusing lenses and energizers that converted the energy into plasma. The plasma was projected through a set of focusing crystals that lent the blade its properties and allowed for the adjustment of blade length and power output. The ideal number of crystals was three, though only one was required.
Once focused by the crystals, the plasma was sent through a series of field energizers and modulation circuitry within the emitter matrix that further focused it, making it into a coherent beam of energy that was projected from the emitter.The blade typically extended about a meter before being arced by the blade containment field back to a negatively charged fissure ringing the emitter, where it was channeled back to the power cell by a superconductor, completing the circuit.

Thanks man, I'll have to read it a few more times, but it's amazing.

I got this all from the official Star Wars wiki. starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page
If you ever have any questions about any Star Wars cannon(some times it is not cannon content on there but it gets cleared up quick) material then you can probably find it there.

How come nobody's bothered to rage at the whole swords can deflect bullets" thing?

I mean, basic physics here. Angle of incidence = angle of reflection? Laws of momentum and collision? Weak weeaboo wrists? All of this makes the possibility of deflection just as dangerous for the deflector as doing nothing at all.

swords are acutually not that durable, they loose their sharpness pretty fast and might even break

If you're prepping for a potential combat situation (i.e a zombie apocalypse), titanium is the way to go. It's hella expensive, but my titanium kukri could cut through a small tree in one or two slices, and still be sharp as hell.
User avatar #12 - areo0420 (02/21/2013) [-]
so... much... circular... reasoning...

swords need to be sharpened and can break
so it's not infinite
#35 - dontknowme (02/21/2013) [-]
swords break

The hell you say?

after awhile the blade gets chipped from bone, gotta take care of that **** man
User avatar #26 to #17 - princessderpy (02/21/2013) [-]
also dulls from slicing through flesh
User avatar #13 - docxy (02/21/2013) [-]
i guess you could consider blade deterioration a form of ammo
User avatar #8 - mattdoggy (02/21/2013) [-]
What about a knife gun
it would never run out of ammo....
User avatar #3 - guiguito (02/20/2013) [-]
so a sword gun would be unstopable?
i guess squal beat me to it
