The Vantage Sword is a Nerf weapon that was released in 2011 under the N-Force series.


It is a medium-sized sword, roughly the same size as the Thunder and Shadow Fury short swords. It has a sturdier grip than those two predecessors, however.

It is compact and tough; the grip is comfortable and its relatively easy to carry. This sword has very few differences in combat with a Thunder or Shadow Fury Short Sword. The hooked shape of the stock can be used to pull an enemy's blaster, although this is unreliable and a much better role for the Klaw Hatchet. The real beauty of the Vantage Sword is that when they are wielded in pairs, the hooks can be used to quite accurately fling one sword from another. The Vantage Sword is also sturdier than its predecessors, although it occupies the same role in combat. While the Vantage Sword is light, it is short and lacks leverage. This means that while effective in close combat against blasters, this sword is easily defeated by other melee weapons, which tend to be longer and/or heavier.

It is comparable to the Zombie Strike Strikeblade, similar in size and shape. It can compete with other swords such as the Marauder.


  • The term "vantage" comes from Middle English, a simple derivative of the word 'advantage'.
