Among the additions that have been introduced to Halo 5: Guardians, there is a new class of weapons you’ll get to use and the first among the legendary weapons you’ll get to use is the Prophet’s Bane. It is basically a modified energy sword forged by the Prophets and has some unique qualities. When you are wielding the Prophet’s Bane, it gives you greater melee distance and increased movement speed. When you’re sprinting at terminal velocity, you’ll notice that your Spartan will turn the sword over and instead of the typical lunge swish, you’ll perform a charging stab. While they didn’t mention any other “legendary weapons”, the way it was stated implies we will see more of these class of weapons either in the beta or with the final game.
