    Short summary of the idea:I want energy swords to be the traitors best friend like they were. right now they are only a weapon, but i want them to be more. They should be able to block energy blasts like the double bladed energy sword is. they should have a 90% chance of blocking long weapons, like other eswords caps sword, null rod (in sertent skins), stun prod and stun baton. it should not block bullets or stun guns. The E sword should also be able to cut through walls and brake windows like a fire ax would.

    here is the number one thing i want LET US PICK THE COLOR OF THE E SWORD
    Possible implementation[Optional unless asked by staff]: it might sound op, but it could be easily countered by a stun gun or a push, if it needs a nerf here, they should only be able to ware it on there belt, they need to hold it with two hands. but only do those if needed.

    The esword is already a fantastic item, and its simplicity helps it in being so good. We can just take your suggestion and make it an "Energy Sabre" instead of fucking with something that's simple, and useful.

    Buffing the esword is totally unnecessary, and honestly quite stupid considering the combo potential it has. Raising its TC would be stupid as well.

    Esword is worse than captains one which has 50 blockchance and higher delimb chance, esword isnt that good for 8 tc, you will be going against stunbatons or disarms, both of which can kill you in 1 hit.

    Esword could be changed so it has a greater knock down chance and can block energy shots better.

    Nah the esword has the same blockchance and delib is based on damage for any sharp weapons. Plus the esword can block ranged projectiles where the sabre cannot.

    esword has always been useless without support from other antag items/slips. nobody ever buys it on its own unless they have a stun item because everyone damn well knows that and anyone that says otherwise is full of shit. give it a buff of some sort.

    you can easily kill people by aiming at their head,knockdown chance is high, there's literally nothing wrong with eswords

    make it make you immune to slips, stuns, tasrs, bullets, gas, atmos, space, BUT each makes a counter increase which, when you hear a scream or fart around, deals all the stun and damge it blocked at ONCE

    At most you could give it a reflect chance of energy and melee stuff of 60%, along with an action button to recolor it? Okay for me, thoughts?

    does not need a direct buff at least, maybe could add upgrade paths for it with rare crap tho.

    Eswords are already traitor items only, giving them upgrades seems excessive and would be rarely used... Honestly i'd prefer to just deny this suggestion, perhaps you can make another about adding a way to color it easily, that i'd accept. Waiting for more input since opinions are mixed on this one
