Gunblades are powerful weapons capable of firing projectiles that depend on archetypes and frames or can change to a melee weapon that can be used at close range. They are under the energy weapon category. Unlike swords, Gunblade blades require multiple attacks to kill rank-and-file combatants. (Around 3-5 strikes)
