I would much rather see them be able to disarm you more often than they did in AC2 (cause Im pretty sure they where supposed to in AC2, but they pretty much NEVER did)

that way You can steal their weapons for often.

The title of this thread does not jive very well with the question, backup weapon?, the guards will pick up any weapon lying around if you disarm them, it's the way I prefer to fight in AC2, I go in unarmed and snatch the weapons from them an instantly drop the weapon to the floor, I do this especially when brutes and those guards with the long poles are involved, they are both a pain to fend off with any weapon, so I found taking theirs from them to be easier, as for civs carrying weapons, no thanks!

If the guards do have a back-up weapon all it will do is

Take their weapon and just before you are going to do the kill, they bring out that weapon to block with it...

Which doesn't sound too bad actually http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But definately not civilians!

Stilettos (http://cashtank.com/store/images/Q0002H3016.jpg) and rapiers (http://www.kb.nl/coop/geheugen/extra/tentoonstellingen/ROBNISA_nl/rapier.jpg) (sometimes both) were often carried by civilians to fend off attackers. These were typically just long, flimsy blades not very suited for combat. The main purpose of these was to just keep the thug(s) out of arms reach while they called for aid. If you actually tried to get into a fight with a rapier against a real sword it would probably break.

I think civiliians should. Otherwise you're the only 'civillian' with weapons.

I think some Civies should have small blades. In the period some people would have carried knives for what ever reason. i dont think it should be random but i think certain civvies should carry only small baldes Noble looking civvies and that. Guards who are a high rank and hader to kill should have a small back up blade yes.
