Melee weapons allow the player to get up close and personal with enemies. They have a variety of uses such as stealthily taking out enemies, or smashing armor plates off machines.

A number of NPCs, both friendly and hostile, also use an assortment of melee weapons that are unavailable to the player. The weapons used are typically dependent on the faction and/or tribe. NPC-only weapons can be divided into two categories: One and two-handed weapons, each with their own moveset.
