** However, after fighting the Gauls and the Samnites, the Romans came to realize that while the phalanx might have worked well in Greece, with its high mountains surrounding low valleys, and in the flat plains and plateaus of the East, the [[MightyGlacier slow and cumbersome]] formation would often lose cohesion in the hilly-but-not-mountainous terrain of Italy. The Romans thus switched to the shortsword (and eventually the gladius) as the main weapon. In this period the ''hasta'' was initially kept by the ''hastati'' (the youngest soldiers) and the ''triarii'' (the veterans), but eventually restricted to the latters.

** The games feature a small assortment of spears that can be useful in the early to middle parts of the game, before getting completely eclipsed by various quality melee weapons, guns, and grenades. Still, dropping a fleeing {{Mook}} by hurling a spear through his back is far more badass then just shooting him.
** The ''Dead Money'' DLC for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' introduces [[{{GasMaskMooks}} Ghost People]], whose WeaponOfChoice is the Knife Spear, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's a decent melee weapon for The Courier to use throughout the DLC, as ammunition is scarce and Ghost People must be dismembered to be permanently killed.
