Melee weapons

(Redirected from Melee Weapons)
Jump to: navigation, search

Melee Weapons are non-magic striking weapons that are used in close- to medium-ranged combat. The defining trait of melee weapons is the fact that they don't consume ammunition or mana upon use.

Melee weapons include Swords, Spears, Flails, Boomerangs, YoyosDesktop VersionConsole Version, and other weapons which can be reused indefinitely without restriction.

Tools such as Axes, Hammers, Pickaxes, Chainsaws, and Drills can be used as melee weapons, but are primarily used as tools, and being classified as such, are not included in the list below.
