Call of Duty isn't exactly Skyrim, but it does include a sword. You can get it in a campaign mission (maybe more than one) to slice bad guys up.
The video above shows where we first found it. We captured this footage from "Old Wounds", the third level of the campaign. The sword is really easy to find but isn't a mandatory item. Grabbing it is one of a stunning amount of optional, tiny side quests that break off from the game's main campaign and encourage—get this—exploration. No, Black Ops II is not a normal Call of Duty!
