VibrationSwords were dangerous to use against electrical weapons, as they conducted electricity. Though electrocution was not the primary concern, electricity traveling up the length of the blade could connect with the weapon's energy cell and ultrasonic vibration generator. The result would be a miniature explosion with enough force to take off the user's hand. The vibrationsword was generally wielded with two hands, although some beings were strong enough to wield them with one and carry two of them. They are chiefly used by snipers but also may appear being used byother personnel.
