The Secret World’s modern world setting certainly offers players a change from the usual fantasy tropes of most of the MMORPG genre.
This extends to the weapons as well as the clothing of course.
Not all the gear is modern though, there’s some rather interesting quest-specific disguises.
So far my favourite item in the game has been this macuahuitl Aztec-style sword.
I’d be very happy for more Aztec flavoured gear in future. More importantly it’d be great if Funcom could add content set in Central or South America in the future also since there’s such a rich cultural mythology there to tap into (Aztec/Mayan/Incan etc).
