​He Made Halo's Energy Sword, and It Looks Really Awkward to Use

Master Chief makes it look easy, doesn't he? But, it turns out that wielding the famous bladed Covenant weapon from the Xbox sci-fi FPS isn't all that graceful. Watch yourself, dude. You ain't no Spartan!

In the latest segment of the Man At Arms webseries, Tony Swatton and crew craft one of a video game weapon that's been requested a whole bunch since they started making fictional weapons real. It's a good-looking likeness, even without the plasma energy crackling all around it. But the thing looks wobbly in action and you'll see that the dude cutting stuff has to stabilize the sword while swinging it. Guess you need a cyborg or alien arm to really do it up right, huh?
