Croc babes. They're a weapon that hasn't been used.


But would you really be afraid of a Crocodile purse?

(I tease because I care, and because I know people who could reboot you)

Teacups aside, I also like the gladiatorial weapons. The League is part exhibition after all.
Scissoris
Retiarii
Flails
I guess Cestus is sort of covered already and hard to really show at our viewing angle.

From another land, coiling swords are also really neat. (Urumi)

. I wonder how Warwick would feel about Farside's Dobie-o-matic.

If the purse still had teeth? You bet I would.


Also please don't reboot me and I'll forget the slight <3

This. Not necessarily the whole thing, but I'd like to see a new precedent for champions with melee weapons that actually have better range than those with shorter weapons.

Also - someone said Xin Zhao uses a Naginata in one of his skins; that's not true. A Naginata is effectively a curved polearm (aka, it's bladed) and Xin's weapons are all spears/piercing types (pointed) he has stylized spears and a trident for his Viscero skin. Nasus does have a poleaxe/halberd of a very weak measure but not with his Galactic skin as that weapon is just ridiculous and doesn't even look edged (frankly it looks blunt) but his Dreadknight skin has what you could say is a poleaxe though the point of this thread isn't just to point out models with weapons as Jax covers some of the missing ones himself - the point is the champion needs to fight like he uses that weapon.

In other words, Nasus' main weapon is a staff but he has a skin with a poleaxe of sorts - he doesn't really fight like most gamers probably like to see a poleaxe character fight - he doesn't slice or chop with it; he generally is a bashing character. I want to see these weapons used in a way that looks more appropriate to fantastical expectations - Tryndamere and the greatsword is a perfect example: He has big swings and his crit animation is a big, extravagant leaping overhead slash. But then, look at Garen, another guy with a big sword and his animations are just out of place - he punches, that's fine; but look at his normal swing and stab, they just don't look appropriate to his weapon the way that his crit animation does with the quick, huge swing where he steps in and uses his whole body - he's supposed to be this graceful, master swordsman who actually matches Katarina in combat but he fights like a guy who doesn't give two ****s based on how lazy he swings.

Anyway, this thread is good. I hope we see some more varied weaponry like a two-bladed swordstaff thing or something and a whip.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but Talon uses a katar.

The one I really liked was the coiling sword. I'm going to add that ^^
