"Is this weapon meant to be a gun or a sword? I think it's both!"

- Nova Terra, discovering the gunblade(src)

The blazefire gunblade is a high-tech weapon researched by the Defenders of Man at General Carolina Davis's compound on Vardona. It is an unconventional weapon which fires bullets in addition to having a long swordlike blade, designed with the principle that one weapon can serve multiple purposes. The unwieldiness of the blade meant that it could only be used by the most accomplished martial artists.[1]

Gameplay Edit

When equipped, Nova uses a ranged attack against air units and a melee attack against ground units.
