The Schiavona was a sword obtainable by Ezio Auditore da Firenze during the 15th and 16th centuries and Arno Dorian during the 18th century. It could be purchased from any blacksmith in Florence, Venice, Forlì, San Gimignano, or Monteriggioni. During his attempt to erode the Borgia's power, Ezio could also purchase the weapon in Rome. Finally, Ezio could once again acquire it in Constantinople during his search for the library of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. Arno could adquire the Schiavona by purchasing it for 200,000 livres in France, being the most expensive sword, but also the most powerful sword alongside the Cinquedea and the Sword of Eden.

- Historically, the Schiavona was a late form of broadsword developed during the 16th century. Its use grew quite popularly over the next few decades, and the Schiavona and other basket-hilted swords of its kind were wielded extensively throughout Renaissance Italy.
- The name descends from their use by the Balkan mercenaries who served as bodyguards to the Doge of Venice. The mercenary groups consisted largely of Istrian and Dalmatian Slavs, known under the term Schiavoni, hence the name.
- The schiavona could be obtained in Assassin's Creed: Revelations through Uplay.
- The only difference between the Cinquedea and the Schiavona in Assassin's Creed: Unity are their appearances and looks, since their stats are identically the same, though the Schiavona is much more expensive than the Cinquedea.
