Weapons: Melee

A complete guide to all the melee weapons found in Dead Matter

Overview
Melee Weapons

Since the dawn of time, humans have utilized tools to inflict damage onto others.

Melee weapons are easy to find and are a good way to defend yourself, at least in the early stages of your character's lifespan. And even later on, when facing a small group of Zombies they usually do the job and save you some ammo.
Below we have compiled a list of all the melee weapons that you may stumble across while traversing the world of Dead Matter. Since the game has not been released yet, this list might be incomplete and/or inaccurate in some places. All the information and images provided here have been gathered from various sources around the internet. A big help in compiling this list has been the Masterlist created by Onyx.
