Spearmen/Archers should be able to switch to swords

In most RTS games, units carry only one weapon, and no backup weapons, to create a rock-paper-scissors setup. Luckily, some RTS games have units which can toggle between weapons, and this ability should be introduced for all units. Spearmen and archers alike carried swords, axes, clubs, etc. because if the formation was broken, then the team-fighting weapons would be less useful in a pinch. Movies like to portray battles as being comprised of hundreds of duels, but IRL war is a team effort.
