im confused as to why there is a bar running throung the middle and a spring on the outside. why have the spring on the outside at all or back when they were being used originally were they just a spring that flailed about like some sort of cenobite sextoy

The real WWI weapons had no bar on the inside. It was designed to be swung like a whip for increased impact velocity.

The spring was very solid, making the club only semi-flexible, so it isn't going to swing like a sextoy.

Man at arms were making a replica of the BF1 in-game item, which is completely solid, which is why this build is so strange.

So they gave themselves more work than what was originally needed lol. I knew there has to have been a reason to have it with a spring instead of a solid bar but never looked into it myself. Anyone else enjoying the game as mich as me.

It really depends on how well their spring worked, I imagine a handforged spring would not have as much tension as a machine made spring.

They are making the spring to replicate the look. How can you not see that?
I'm pretty sure it functionally helps to absorb shock as well.

Also helps reduce the mass by not being completely solid
