Energy sword question

How do elites activate their energy sword? Do they press a button? In the games I just see them shake it to activate, but that means that if they have the sword holstered and walk, it will activate. Also what about jackals, how do they activate their energy shield? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I just have always wondered.

    I imagine it's a pressure switch, it activates if someone is holding it. What actually doesn't make sense is the battery draining mechanics, they lose 10% every kill. Why would they lose charge by killing someone? And yet they can be sustained forever without killing someone?

  • Pressure sensor I reckon. That explains the dead man's switch on CE era swords. Furthermore, I wish swords would be deactivated when they're dropped. Damn gameplay mechanics.

  • It's probably a button of some kind. Shaking it would be silly. Too sensitive. Way too many ways that could backfire.

OT: There has to be some sort of button or something.

  • I think the way that your in-game character equips the Energy Sword is how it activates.
