    Sword vs spear, which is better?

    I am writing a si fi novel, here and want to ask real soldiers or martial art experts a question, saber vs spear, which is better. In this future war, melee range combat happen more frequently then today, in infantry. and I am trying to decide whether infantry should use a combination of UZI (range) and sword/saber whose blade can heat to 1000% degree for melee or to use bayonet made of alloy that can also withstand 1000 degree heat and is it better to attach a sword, saber or knife with the bayonet
