The Bronze Sword was a type of crude sword forged from bronze that was utilized by Philistine mercenaries. In 48 BCE, one was wielded by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa during his assassination of Rudjek, a member of the Order of the Ancients.
Rudimentary in design and construction, the Bronze Sword was a simple double-edged straight sword which, as its name suggests, was forged from bronze. Like typical swords of the 1st century BCE, such as the Roman gladius, the Bronze Sword lacked a real guard, consisting only of a stop between the hilt and the blade. The blade itself tapered to a sharp point, but overall, it was a crude weapon of poor quality.
A weapon common to Philistine mercenaries, the Bronze Sword was wielded by the Medjay Bayek in 48 BCE when he hunted Rudjek of the Order of the Ancients to the Bent Pyramid. A few months after killing his target, Bayek was forced to fight against Rudjek's bodyguard Hypatos in the outskirts of Siwa who he subsequently slew with this sword.

Behind the scenes
The model of the Bronze Sword, a weapon in Assassin's Creed: Origins, is shared by the Thutmosid Sword in the same game, and it was recycled as the model of the Bandit Sword, a weapon in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and its kind. The model is based mainly on the Achaemenid bronze sword from Hebron and has a typical Akinakes pommel.
