            look. I get that americans are big, but they are not at the level where the war elephant approach is needed for urban combat.

    Urban implies tight spaces where your only option will be stabs and thrusts.
    So sword obviously.

      Axe. It can technically cut some things, though not as well as a good knife. You cant chop, and you also have a built in hammer. A hatchet like that is very versatile and that's what's important. Even better if it has even a small pike on top because

      With only one hand on it you're more likely to let your opponent past the point or lose control when they grab it. Two handing the spear is better.

      Shield and mace would be better.
      It is pretty effective and absolutely foolproof.

    probably a falchion or shorter messer if people are in light clothing or a 18" rondel if it's something you're always carrying and people are generally wearing heavier clothing. barongs look pretty scary, too

    Be seen as that eccentric weirdo whose tendency to drag his larp sword around actually saved his life.

      axe or short sword for urban combat?

      If you get an axe, you can use it for breaching doors or cutting your way out of drywall but this is PrepHole so you're just trying to larp and not use any of your gear so go with the sword

      Stud finder shouldn't be necessary as you can just cut along the stud once you feel some resistance. I think an axe is more dependable anyway and you could even bust through cinderblocks if you really had to

    Sword. Unless the guy has armor (stabproof vest + cutproof arms will make it much harder to do damage).

    Even small one-handed axes take longer to swing with a reduced chance of striking the opponent (smaller blade), but will also deal a much better wound from a slash compared to a sword and can be used as a blunt force weapon when flipped around.
    Short swords will have slightly better reach, have the capacity to deal stabs and are both more manuverable and quicker than short axes.

    Short sword way better than hatchet, hatchets are actually terrible weapons.

    depends on if you want just a weapon or useful tool
    as weapon sword is better because it can stab
    as a tool an axe particulartly fire axe or pulaski is way better because it has an additional part for prying
