Melee weapons are close-range styled weapons. Some melee weapons have enough power to kill an opponent with a single thrust into the head or anywhere on the body.
Melee weapons come with two functions. Left click will give you a hasty attack which can be repeated rapidly. However, right click gives you a much more powerful, yet lengthy to execute attack.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Melee weapons aren't too heavy but can be a bit tricky to use since each of them requires timing for you to use them. However, melee weapons are close range weapons, as a result, this puts you at a severe disadvantage if the target is out of the melee range.
Certain melee can be prepped by holding RMB, allowing players to time their attack more precisely. Some melee also features Double Attack when executing a secondary attack, which deal two lethal hits in one strike. This technique is useful when fighting against multiple opponents, but severely limits the attack speed because the attack will take much longer to finish.
