A swordfight is a fight between multiple people using swords. The goal is usually to knockout opponents while keeping your own health. Some end in less than a second, with all participants having wiped out each other, but others may end in a few more seconds. Some places are made just for sword fighting, from sword training places built by clans, to some of the most popular places on ROBLOX, such as TheGamer101's Sword Fighting Tournament, or Telamon's Sword Fight on the Heights.
The first sword fighting form use was 1st person mode. Where you would zoom into first person and attack like that. It would work well back than, when you could get into first person and than sidestep and kill a player. But now the most commonly used is shiftlock. Shift lock allows the same results as 1st person, except one improvement. The ability to see behind you. This is good when you are in a fight with a group of people, so you can be aware of your surroundings.
Since the sword's region of damage is usually directly in front of the blade, it is more effective to attack the player from the left of their character model.
