Come on, get Your Hands Dirty!!

In a galaxy full of high powered blasters, advanced scopes, and lightning quick vehicles, not many people want to get down and dirty in vicious close combat. But to those who do, the benefits are manifold. No matter how strong you are, on average, your blaster shots hurt the same as everyone else’s. In close combat, your brute strength or finesse can make your attacks far more deadly. Here’s some weapons, inspired by the past, but made far, far, far more deadly.

The Vibro Morning Star
A powerful melee weapon, made so by its dual vibrations. The balls vibrates, as well as each individual spike. They Vibrate in opposite directions, at alternating times. This make the wound FAR Larger than with a regular Vibro weapons, but the dual technology makes it all the more expensive. It also comes with a dial, and the option of “High Mode” this makes it even more powerful, but it takes the vibration over the power of the dampeners in the handle, making the weapon unwieldily.

The Vibro Spear
While the force pike is powerful, it isn’t very useful on the defense. Czerka arms, seeing this flaw in force pike designs, created the Vibro spear, a weapon perfect for use in defense of a charging enemy. It is smaller, cheaper and easier to wield than a force pike. It can also be thrown, but the vibration limits the range. If the vibration is turned off, the Increment returns to 4m.
