"Born of fire and hand-hewn for a knight."
The Crusader Sword is essentially a powered-up Gladiator Sword, able to cut bushes and having equal power to the Bronze Spear. The player acquires the Lance shortly after acquiring the Crusader Sword, so the player will have their choice between the two weapons and the Sword's melee capabilities against the Lance's ranged capabilities.
The Crusader Sword's level 2 attack is to step forward slightly while swinging twice. Its level 3 attack has the Hero raise the sword for a moment, then swing it around them several times, dealing damage to enemies around them and potentially hitting several times.
