Clash of Clones - No Weapon

I have read several post on this and it appears the best way to defeat this level is not to have a weapon. However, when I unequip my sword, it brings up a blinking arrow pointing to another sword. It doesn’t let me enter the level until I have a weapon. Obviously I’m missing something. Any help would be appreciated.

Use a hammer? Or does the issue prevent that too?

How do I use a hammer instead of weapon? It appears that the two hammers I have are restricted.

Bug? Try to contact one of the leaders. Maybe @Bryukh can help.

You can use the weakest sword. A weapon is required for this level.


Thanks for the help.
