Default Four Armed Warriors! Which Weapons?

Watching this You Tube brought this question up. I think he ignores the Targe with Spike. It's a shield that can stab. If your four-armed warrior has good armor. I'd go with two Parrying Daggers and a Two-handed sword. My main offense would be strong, and my defense could become an offense if my opponent was distracted.

How would you arm four-armed troops in a medieval fantasy setting?

Big shields or small ones? Four one-handed swords, or two two-handed ones. Many types of weapons or all the same type?

How would you play it?

Precognition. After all, forewarned is four armed.
