The Double-Bladed Sword was a weapon wielded by Kain in Blood Omen 2.[1][2][3]


The Double-Bladed Sword was first found on the floors of the Industrial Quarter and in the hands of Glyph guards. The Double-Bladed Sword resembled a bone when it was on the ground, when used, two spring-mounted blades sprung from the handle giving Kain a long double bladed staff- type weapon.

The Grab Attacks of the Double-Bladed Sword included 'opening' the blades onto a victims stomach or head.

The Stealth kills included a 'backward throat stab' and a 'spinning backwards stab'.[BO2][2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Double-Bladed Sword greatly resembles the Double-Bladed Lightsaber wielded by Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace . Kain's 'spinning backwards stab' also greatly resembles a move used by Darth Maul to kill Qui-Gon Jinn in that film.[2]
  • The Double-Bladed Sword is sometimes identified by other variant terms such as "Dual Bladed Staff"[4] and is referred to in debug information as a "polearm"[BO2].

The spring loaded blades make for some interesting grab attacks.//Grab attack 1: Side stab//Grab attack 2: Head stab (how they live is beyond me)//Stealth kill 1: Kain does his reenactment of the fight between Qui Gon Jinn and Darth Maul.//Stealth kill 2: Throat stab.

When holding a grabbed opponent you can do three weak hits by pressing the attack button, do a heavy attack by pressing up and attack, or throw them a great distance by pressing up and the grab button. I recommend to inflict the most damage is to do two weak hits and finish off with either the heavy attack or throw.". GameFAQS. Blood Omen 2 Strategy Guide (2002)(by Chetflavin).
