Dual Wield One-handed Weapons

With such an emphasis on number of arms available to use weapons, why cannot soldiers hold two one-handed weapons? For example, I would LOVE to see my melee troops holding both a Combat Shield and a Melee Weapon. This seems like the ultimate use of the shield given the risk melee soldiers must take. Additionally, since many melee troops are Berserkers, they should be able to use Shield and Pistol at the same time.


100%, the seems surprisingly poorly thought through, particularly when there’s already a shield that’s been developed for the arthons.

Arthrons are able to return fire with the shield and deploy for free, why are we researching 20th century tech to have it as a poor mans version of the basic enemy ability?
