I didn't see a Poll on this so I made one!
I had 2 ideas for them
1). Make them where they have a charge like with electricity or a different element and put them in the special slot where they require special ammo along with there own upgrade tree
2) an option for melee instead of using your fist and give them there own upgrade tree
Edit: here's another idea let us choose where to place them on our body like long swords can be placed on our back waist short sword lower back or attached to you leg or back 😜 yay for swords
If you have any idea's post them and let's not try to flame just because you don't want them doesn't mean they shouldnt be in the game
I. WANT. TWO BLACK SWORDS ON BY BACK, so that it fits my name, that and i would LOVE to have the swords as decoration but i cant describe how i feel about swords because i feel like they are apart of me! [spoiler]looks at hand and sees its turned into a sword. What a twist! XD[/spoiler]
Hmm.. Perhaps a sword form of the arc blade that is a heavy weapon and melee attacks use the sword as a sword and "shooting" fires a vertical wave for range attacks, and have it be ammo based where the "shooting" requires more ammo than the melee.
What about this:
Class specific/exotic Mellee weapon!
(use heavy slot/ammo)
-Hunter Void Bow
act like a throwing knives upgrade. Think Varus with Crysis 3 bow.
-Warlock Arc Sword/Katana
Think Yasuo meet Onimusha.
-Titan Solar Warhammer/Battle Axe
Think Darius meet The Smelter Demon(Dark Souls 2)
They could be used like regular mellee attack with RB and heavy ammo could act like a "cooldown" for their RT special attack.
P.s.: Lol, kinda gimmicky :P
Sorry for all the League of Legends references, thats what came to my mind at the time. Haha
Option 1 and 2. L? In exchange for getting -what could result in- an exotic melee, let the sword take up a weapon slot and give it an upgrade tree. Come on, an exotic sword that doubles melee range? GIVE IT TO ME!!

Good thread by the way I often check on the poll to see how it's doing
This game has space wizards, warp drive, A.I. controlled robots, levitating tanks, and terraformed planets...its a [i]slight[/i] step back to kill enemies with a long piece of sharp steel. Sure, the hunter has a knife, but that is not his [i]main[/i] weapon.
This is how it should go. The swords are heavy weapons and are similar to the energy sword from halo. It has maybe 10 hits on it. It would be great that way. And if you don't want one, sell it! But I speak for the majority of people when I say, GIVE ME A GOD DAMN SWORD!
I think swords in Destiny would be exceptionally boss...but if swords are going to be put in the game they need to have the same revered nature as they did in Halo...i.e. they need to be treated as heavy weapons...
If swords are put in destiny they should be a heavy weapon...their "ammo" would be similar to halo in that they require a plasma charge or theyre otherwise rendered useless and therefore would require heavy ammunition ,probably 10 swings(that make contact with a target), before running out of charge, that way theyre not overused as a secondary...I feel they could easily balance a sword into gameplay same as they did with halo...
But remember...a beta isn't representative of the overall content in the game...the Halo 3 Beta prolly didnt even have a third of the weapons as there were in the final version...therefore there may still be a plethora of weapon types yet to be seen awaiting us in destiny...swords included...^-^
All huntards will throw a fit and start crying if option 2 is given...
Just letting you know.
Some fallen invisible elites already use swords. Frankly... i am not a fan of it. The fact that people in destiny (where human race is so advanced) still use knives is weird to me
I feel like swords could add so much more to the combat in the game. There would be pros and cons to using a sword. A gun has the advantage of its range, but you can be of more convenience with a sword in close combat. With a blade a player doesn't have to stop to reload when the enemy is only a few feet in front of him. I suppose you could melee the guy two or three times but I would get more satisfaction out of slashing a foe with a sword that deals damage quicker and faster.
I thought it would be cool to have swords classified as a weapon you could have equipped in maybe something like your special weapons slot. It would have its own attack damage and skill tree like the guns do and could be part of loot drops and everything. I could be low on ammo during a battle and just pull out my sword and keep attacking instead of searching around for some ammo on the ground. Half the time when I play shooters I wish I could just slash through my enemies just as much as I am able to shoot them. It would be something awesome to see in a future update, since it would be kind of late to have Bungie trying to make a whole bunch of different sword models with unique stats and such right before release.
