The Type-1 Energy Weapon/Sword (or T1 EW/S) is more commonly identified as the Energy Sword. This weapon consists of a grip that contains an energy storage/generation device and the blade projector and, when activated a blade composed of plasma stabilized within an energy field.

Energy Sword Tips
- Don't go out in the open with your sword out. For one thing, it's practically useless in open combat. Another, more detrimental effect would be the fact that your sword will act like a glowing sliver "Kick Me" sign. Put it away when not in a close quarters battle.
- It's somewhat hard to tell if somebody is carrying the sword when it is not out. Use that to your advantage to try and lure someone into a hallway or room. Turn the corner, pop out your sword when hidden from view and cut 'em up. --Jack OS X
- Remember to hold down the trigger when using it, otherwise it doesn't lunge. LordoftheBleak
- Combining sprint with this weapon makes it the most effective close quarters weapon in the game. --AlbinoDodoBird
