Melee Weapons is a weapon class in Wasteland 3 based on Melee Combat skill.

Description[]

Melee Weapons have two subtypes: Bladed Weapons and Blunt Weapons.

  • Bladed: Your best friend in the wastes is a finely honed blade. Blades and are perfect for fighters who like to get up close and personal. They strike often, and deal high damage to enemies with light armor.
  • Blunt: It doesn’t get more basic than hitting people with a stick - or more satisfying! Blunt weapons deal high damage to enemies in heavy armor, and with a little training, you can stun with them too.

Attributes and skill[]

Recommended Attributes: Strength, Coordination, Speed.

Melee Combat skill provides following bonuses:

  • Bladed weapon hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
  • Blunt weapon hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
