thumb|100pxA sword is a bladed melee weapon, and in ROBLOX, they were released in 2007. This is one of the first 7 gear on ROBLOX. They have a very close range, and can do very high damage very quickly. One example is the LinkedSword. All swords can slash, but most can also lunge for greater reach and damage. To slash, click once with the sword. To lunge, double-click.
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 swordfighting, from sword training places built by clans, to some of the most popular places on ROBLOX, such as Sword Fighting Tournament, or Telamon's Sword Fight on the Heights.
