Dual-Wielding and Sheaths

Im not exactly sure myself if this idea would fit into the game but it would be cool to dual wield swords at the cost of low damage because you're using one hand but able to damage things faster and you're much harder to block and predict. You also get a bit slower but if you have a jetpack you can hit more people or do intense damage by slashing people with two swords .
Plus it'd look epic in photo mode.

Now sheaths.
When you buy the bow or hammer the repair bot puts new parts on you. So when you switch you weapon , your weapon won't just disappear into nothing but instead it would go someone on your back or side

Sword:At your side. Its just a little square that you put your sword in so the blade is still exposed.
Bow:On your back you put your bow handle in there and is closed with a latch
Hammer:On your side also but different position. Holder is like the sword


I do like the idea of sheathes for your weapons, but the dual wielding idea would kind of break the game considering that all weapons (minus hammer) slice directly through your opponents, and I think it'd be an awkward situation for both the creators and the player if they did "lower damage"

When I picture lower damage in this game I think of the blade not going all the way through your enemy, but due to the fact that the weapons (except hammer) are pretty much lightsabers slicing through everything with ease, it'd make no sense in the terms of lower damage, where in this game is dealing with damage in percentage of body hit (+fire) instead of a health bar.

The sheathes I would like to see. The disappearing of your weapons is an odd thing (EXCEPT FOR NANOMACHINES SON)! It would be a cool little detail to add to the weapons. The sword having a sheath where the blade sticks out to damage your enemies is a possible idea, or just have a full cover for it, made out of the material that the floor and walls are made of, considering you don't disintegrate those on contact.

The bow could go on your back with a small hook or latch to keep it in place, and the hammer would be tougher, considering the upgrades making the thing HUGE. However, the huge hammer could grind on the ground with sparks cuz physics. With physics in mind, the sheathed weapons could sway in accordance to movement, ex) Sword goes upwards slightly if falling, to the sides when you strafe etc.

Thanks for reading! Keep up the good ideas and work guys!

I agree with DomDropsBombs, dual wielding would kinda break the game.

about sheaths: I like all of them, but i think the sword should go on the back with the bow.
