    I’m the only that thinks that, while the sword is really fucking awesome like batman riding a mecha t-rex that has a laser mini gun mounted on (that happened) doesn’t make any in the category of “safe to use”

    Reaper hull material in and of itself is safe, especially after being passed through a gravitic plasma forge.

    That being said, it reacts … somewhat weirdly to certain things, and it isn’t safe to use in a sense that if a normal warp sword is damaged and blows up it would make a pretty big bang, and this monster has six times as much eezo inside it.

    So if it was damaged and blew up, the result would be pretty much a nuke.

    Let’s put it like this.

    I’ve made changes to how ships use eezo, but a cruiser needs about ten pounds of eezo to operate its core for a six month deployment.

    There are fifteen pounds of eezo in that sword. A standard warp sword has two pounds.

    Yeah, a core detonation is a bit heftier than a nuke.

    But hey! You could sneak it on to a Reaper and detonate it in there to destroy the Reaper!

    Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

    This is a tactic the Thirty eventually use on Thessia. Even a conventional warp sword going off is basically like a CAIN detonation.

      Wait, so does that mean if you throw one at a planet from space it qualifies as nuking the site from orbit? Cause you know that shit’s the only way to be sure. 😀
