Prominence of swords versus guns

I was curious to see whether swords or guns were more prominent than the other and by exactly how much, so I did a breakdown of sword moves vs gun moves. Esoteric swords like the Blades of Chaos and cannons like Nariko's level 2 are being counted.

Kratos
Sword: all 4 square moves, neutral triangle, up throw, all 3 supers (Total: 9)

Sweet Tooth
Sword: neutral square, up triangle (Total: 2)
Gun: forward triangle, down triangle, super 3 (Total: 3)

Radec
Sword: up square, side throw (Total: 2)
Gun: forward square, all 4 triangle moves, neutral circle, up circle, down circle, side throw, up throw, all 3 supers (Total: 13)

Drake
Gun: all 4 triangle moves, forward circle, super 1, super 3, arguably down circle (Total: 7-8)

Ratchet
Gun: all 4 triangle moves, neutral circle, up circle (Mr. Zurkon's arm blaster), all 3 throws, super 1, super 3 (Total: 11)

Jak
Gun: all 4 triangle moves, all 4 circle moves (Total: 8)

Dante
Sword: neutral square, up square, air down square, neutral circle, super 1, super 2 (Total: 6)
Gun: all 4 triangle moves (Total: 4)

Nariko
Sword: neutral square, forward square, up square, air down square, all 4 triangle moves, down circle, all 3 throws, super 3 (Total: 14)
Gun: Super 2 (Total: 1)

Raiden
Sword: EVERYTHING except up circle (Total: 17)

Sir Daniel
Sword: all 4 square moves, side throw (Total: 5)

Spike
Sword: down square (Total: 1)
Gun: down triangle, super 3 (Total: 2)

Items
Gun: Dohvat Laser Designator, LR-3 Railgun, RPG-7 Rocket Launcher (Total: 3)


Total
Sword: 56
Gun: 52 (53 if you count Drake's cover)

you should be counting sword users versus gun/projectile users.

the way you counted it makes it sound like the swords being used are all different.

there are more projectile/gun based users than sword users. just saying

You're missing some. For example Drake's aerial down triangle is unique and should be counted.
