The lighter of the three in the Broadsword Family, but more orientated as a rifleman. Constantly on the move, but their there to get the other teams heads down. Right behind the other rifleman a Longsword grabs their opponents attention and either takes them out or opens the opportunity for Daggers or Sabers to do the job. This type of player carries a good deal of paint, and is well suited with a fast double trigger or a response trigger.
The Battle Axe
The Heavier of the three in the Broadsword Family, but more orientated towards extreme suppressive fire. A Battle Axe may be considered a direct replacement to a Hammer. With just as much paint, if not more, and almost the the same rate of fire as one, a Battle Axe has the advantage of maneuverability in a direct comparison. The job of one is to bust holes in the enemies front line, and to make an opportunity for the rest of their team where one wasn't before. In terms of an A-5, a Battle Axe marker is just about completely after market, costing as much as a Hammer with just one gun.
Position Icons for the Longsword and the Battle Axe with the rest of the normal positions and a small change to the standard Broadsword position.
I'm very much open to input from others on these two positions.
