The Broken Sword is a broken (but still usable) version of the Excalibur. It is obtained when using the Clone Gun on Excalibur.

Functionality

As its description implies, the Broken Sword is still a powerful weapon, instantly gibbing most common enemies, although it is not as powerful, dealing half the damage as the standard Excalibur, and being unable to damage Kingu's shell like Excalibur can, meaning it is much harder to reach the Sunken City using it and not the intact version of the blade.

Strategy

  • Typically, there are only two reasons that a player would want the Broken Sword; They do not have the Crown or Hedjet and cannot take Excalibur, or they want the Journal entry for it.
  • The Broken Sword can prove useful on runs that players want to end after defeating Tiamat in Neo Babylon, as it will reduce everything in the player's way there to chunks.
