As the third longest weapon in the game (After pikes and lances), it should be used in a similar fashion to a pike. Taking that it also deals the least damage of any two-handed weapon, being the only one to kill in 3 hits instead of 2, it should be used at a distance longer than the sword's reach. The war scythe is useful if any soldier is running after you and melee-ing you, since it can attack them before they reach you and, if you're lucky, hit at least twice.
A long brown pole with a metal cap attached to the opposite end as the curved blade.
