A gun and a sword (or other melee weapon) combo...''when not used at the same time.'' Typical combination for characters and armies on the advent of gunpowder, the ranged weapon in this case is often more of a throw-away weapon used to down an opponent before closing to meet with the rest. The gun can be a pistol or a rifle just as well - in fact, the musket itself (which the musketeer is named for) is a long two-handed gun. This sort of a warrior tend toward the WoodenShipsAndIronMen -- {{pirate}}s may even wear a [[BadassBandolier bandolier]] with several loaded pistols, like RealLife Blackbeard did, in addition to two pistols on his sword belt -- and {{Swashbuckler}} settings, but not limited to them. {{Samurai Cowboy}}s need ''both'' a [[RevolversAreJustBetter Revolver]] and [[KatanasAreJustBetter Katana]], so they apply as well. It can even be more modern and futuristic, up to [[StarWars Jedi]] proficient in both the blaster and the [[LaserBlade lightsaber]].

* It's possible to have a character equip melee weapons and guns in ''Videogame/PillarsOfEternity'' and it's even the starting set of [[WarriorPoet Kana Rua]]. This is apparently fairly typical of the clergy of Magran, [[WarGod goddess of war]] and fire.

** [[BritswithBattleships The British Army ]] very much does not consider this a DeadHorseTrope as Bayonet drills are an essential training they still practice and have performed a bayonet charge even in recent times against the [[TheFundamentalist The Talibans]] managing to scare them off.

* [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]] is capable of using his ArmCannon and his Zero Saber in tandem, depending on your control set-up.

* [[VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon Raidou Kuzunoha XIV]] uses both Sword and Pistol when going against demons, and while generally the sword does better damage, guns are very useful in both Kuzunoha games due to their secondary properties (ability to load elemental bullets in first, the ability to stun foes in the second).

to:

* [[VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon ** ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'': In the first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', the playable characters can alternate between a melee weapon or a ranged weapon with the grid based battle system. The ability to equip every character with both melee weapons and firearms then disappeared from the series for a decade, before finally returning in ''Videogame/Persona5''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'': This is the standard loadout of the player character and all other "Hunter" characters in the game. Interestingly, for purposes of game balance, the guns usually don't do all that much damage (unless you really level up your [[MagikarpPower Bloodtinge]]), but are instead used to stun opponents and, if used with the proper timing, parry their attacks to do large amounts of damage.

* Many of the characters on ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' are this. They'll use firearms when they're far away from the walkers and/or there are a lot of them to deal with at once. But when they only need to worry about one or two at close quarters they will usually use a knife so as not to waste ammunition.
