New Conan Exiles Images Show Axes, Shields, Crossbows and Spears; Info on Weapons Shared

on July 9, 2016 3:31 PM

Funcom released two concept pieces of its upcoming open world survival game Conan Exile on its official Facebook page, showcasing different weapons.

We also get some information on how those weapons will work:

“Crossbows are easy to load and fire, and are great for blowing up explosive barrels or taking out enemies from a distance. The spear is a quick-jab, close combat weapon, for fast fighters who like to poke at their opponents and then retreat behind a shield.

A shield and axe combo can be quite deadly, in the right hands.

Single handed axes are slower and heavier than swords, but deal much more damage to your opponents. They’re also pretty awesome looking, if we’re being completely honest. Very viking-y, and perfect for a Conan game.

Shields are for defense, obviously, but can also be used offensively by bashing your opponent with it and staggering them. Then you go in for the kill and cut off their heads.”
