Pikes were an unobtainable weapon seen in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver 2. They were first observed as the weapon of Malek in Blood Omen and reappeared in Soul Reaver 2, where they were among the rarest weapons in the game; found only in the hands of four of the final Sarafan commanders and inaccessible during normal gameplay.

Wiki-Icon-BO1 Blood Omen: Legacy of KainEdit

The Pike was first encountered in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, where it was wielded by Malek as his weapon of choice.[Blood Omen] It was first seen in the opening cutscenes depicting the Slaughter of the Circle in Nosgoth's early history and the battle between Vorador and Malek.[Blood Omen/1] When Kain confronted Nupraptor in his retreat in the events of Blood Omen, Malek appeared to protect Nupraptor armed with his Pike but was angrily dismissed by the mentalist,[Blood Omen/3] later when Kain confronted Malek in his bastion Malek used the weapon against him.[Blood Omen/4] Malek and his Pike would later be seen in cutscenes recapping the slaughter of the circle at the Oracle's Cave[Blood Omen/5] and Vorador's Mansion.[Blood Omen/6] Ultimately Malek would wield the Pike when he was summoned to Dark Eden and was finally killed by Vorador.[Blood Omen/7]

Wiki-Icon-SR2Soul Reaver 2Edit

Pike weapons were again encountered in Nosgoth's early history at the end of Soul Reaver 2, where some the final Sarafan commander bosses were armed with Pikes in their boss battles.[Soul Reaver 2] Initially the Pike was once again seen wielded by Malek as he and Moebius confronted Raziel in the Sarafan Stronghold.[Soul Reaver 2/9] As Raziel continued through the stronghold and battled his former brethren, he found that three of the final bosses to confront him - Melchiah, Dumah and Turel - were armed with Pikes in their battles against Raziel.[Soul Reaver 2/9]

At this stage of the game, Raziel was usually armed with the Reaver blade, which had made him invincible and unable to drop the blade. However, by using the debug menu, it was possible to skip passed the room where Raziel recovered the Reaver and battle the commanders unarmed, allowing Raziel to recover their weapons. In combat, the Pike was a similar weapon to the Trident, sharing many of its moves, but with a noticeably longer blade and range.[Soul Reaver 2]
