There are 2 swords on your back, the silver sword for the monsters and the steel sword for whatever else. I only seem to be able to equip one of the swords by pressing the right arrow on the D pad. How to I equip the other sword?
You can switch between both swords using the left and right arrows on the d pad. I think left is the normal sword and right is the silver sword, but either way you can use both left and right to switch between the 2 different sword types in The Witcher 3
