For a sortable list of all available melee weapons, along with their stats for comparison, see List of melee weapons.

Melee weapons are weapons dealing melee damage which are used in close- to medium-ranged combat. The defining trait of melee weapons is the fact that they do not consume ammunition or mana upon use.

Melee weapons are roughly categorized into swords, spears, flails, boomerangs, and yoyosDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version. There are several other melee weapons not fitting any of these types.

Tools such as pickaxes, drills, axes, chainsaws, and hammers inflict melee damage and can be used as melee weapons, but are far weaker than actual melee weapons of corresponding tiers. As such, they are usually not considered melee weapons.

The following lists present all melee weapons along with their damage and how to acquire them. The intention of this is to convey an idea of their strength and the approximate time during gameplay at which they can be obtained. For a sortable list that displays all statistics of all melee weapons, see List of melee weapons.
