The satisfying when you slice something up with a broadsword. Also I think it was England, not France, that won many battles in the Hundred Year's War with archers.
It will kill you easily.

A muzzle loading shotgun that could use anything as ammo as long as there was enough gunpowder.
Its an awesome weapon, they even use to fill it with scrap metal and wood if they ran out of ammo.

Definitely more lethal than that big fork trident thing. - jezza0V 3 Comments

A peasant can now kill a Knight and the Chinese had the repeat crossbow which could fire up to one bolt a second which is faster than any longbow man.
There was also the triple crossbow which was used in sieges on both sides.
A frankish throwing axe
Can be used both as a handheld wielding weapon as well as an effective projectile
It's the most popular weapon in history. It was still used in war more then the bow and arrow for all of the years in which the bow and arrow was used. It has vastly superior reach to the sword. It is more intuitive to use then the sword or the bow. It is the first weapon that allowed man to hunt large game. Until the invention of relatively modern firearms it was still the most common weapon on nearly all battlefields. On a less objective note, Odin used one and he was Thor's dad.
A spear can kill an opponent at long range
Jesus Christ, I know this can be used as a weapon, but the idea behind it was to defend you. - LordDovahkiin
