Several secondary weapons have special powers. Some, like the Illusions Dagger, are instant kills if thrown and not blocked. Some will knock an opponent down with one hit, like the axes you get from the weapons racks. However, the most important secondary weapon is the Sand Gate Guard's Sword. At each Sand Gate there is one guard with red armor, who has sand flying to him from the Sand Gate. He is the only guard that can call for reinforcements. If you kill him you only have to deal with his friends. Note: All the Sand Gates can be done with Speed Kills so that there is no need to fight anyone, but this is tougher. The red Sand Gate Guard drops his sword after you kill him. This sword's power is to regenerate one Sand Tank about every 1.5 seconds. Therefore, as long as you are carrying this sword, you will have virtually infinite sand, unless you either throw it away or become the Dark Prince. Because you can regain this sword at any Sand Gate, it is much like having infinite sand. However, because this sword has a rather low number of hit points, if you want to keep its power do not use it in a fight; just use the dagger and your Sand Powers.
