I'm right now of the opinion the the rebar tongue is the best blade (Good knockdown, death easy, however a little bit heavy), but I recognize it more than likely isn't. Ns noticed the replica bastard sword appears to be pretty good, but not as great as the rebar blade. I also think the bell club is the ideal blunt weapon I've seen, but it more than likely isn't.

So, i m sorry are the finest weapons in the game? and what about Heartland? Is any type of melee course (swords, blunt, near combat) far better than the other?

I provide almost all of my swordsmanship civilization a rebar blade.

The Bastard the Belleau timber has better lethality, however it degradation faster. I have actually one dude who carries it.

For mine Strikers, ns hand out freedom Ringers. It's probably not the best, however it's cursed good.

In Nightmare, I in reality go v Close Combat fairly a bit. It's supervisor fast and also super lethal. Being able to easily execute zombaes native the rear OR the prior is So cursed Handy. And also I love that small laugh castle do once they stomp on a zombie's head!

All mine builds are marathon + stealth + Swordplay, weight is a big factor for my beat style. Because that me over there is no replacement because that the newly added Ice Axe. Durable, lethal, fast and also most importantly it just weighs .5 lbs

If the rebar blade to be a bit lighter I'd usage that instead. That weapon is a beast.

The fire rescue hatchet is completely OP especially if her character has actually high stamina stat. It's lightweight and also fast. I've had a character solitary handedly take on 2 hordes in NZ on through it and win

For blunt, ns like metal Bats and the metal Nightstick. Light, durable, straightforward to usage (low stamina cost), kind knockdown. For bladed, the ice Axe; again, light, durable, low stam cost.

I always go nearby Combat, though. The tanto and also the antler blade room my favorites; also though the difference is just cosmetic, they look the coolest come me.

Which ability is "best" depends a lot of on your playstyle and also your survivors' skills. They all have benefits and disadvantages, and also they're pretty fine balanced versus each other overall. Choose whichever one works best for friend or is the most fun to play with.

Close Combat IMO is the best, at least on nightmare. No maintenance, no weight, frontal execute, much faster rear execute and the attack damage is ~ above par v a typical melee if friend ever also need it. Pairs finest with Gunslinger.

BBW stat way is best weapon in game but has shit for durability therefore you can only offer it to someone who has actually the stats to make it critical longer. Providing it to a new recruit is worthless.

Second ideal sharp is the preorder Grasscutter, come the allude that it would certainly be pay to victory if the BBW no exist. The Echo-2 Mamba is almost as good, simply shittier durability.

Completely don’t know the love people have because that rebar blade. I guess human being like having fifty percent stamina efficiency and not gift able to operation indefinitely, shrug.

As for dull weapons, the Apocalypse bat is likewise another one of those totally overbalanced preorder weapons prefer the Grasscutter. It has some that the ideal stats out of any blunt, including max durability also if you disregard the reality that the weighs just 1.5 lbs. The weapon the comes in a close second (no surprise, an additional preorder weapon) is the Titan Bat. It’s 2nd only due to the fact that it’s 10 freaking pounds. You i will not ~ find much better blunt stats at any weight. 3rd place is preorder Zedpiercer at 1.0 lbs. It looks favor a Haligan tool however has much, much far better stats consisting of max durability.

I have actually all the preorder supply drops since I won an Undead Labs stream event thing. Every the preorder weapons are totally overbalanced. They’re far better stat way than basically every rarely loot instance weapon.

The new 0.5 lb. Pick and also 4 lb. Fire axe space decent backups. The best things about them is that they’re great influence dumps because that future communities. Friend can gear up quickly if girlfriend don’t gain dozens of complimentary weapons from preorder supply drops prefer me.

The Heartland weapons were included to the base video game via a basic mod. The just melee, the 12 lb. Danforth Slugger, is a bad man’s Titan Bat. Ns think it’s comparable with the 10 lb. RTX Crusher. (The Heartland guns are great. The Masterwork AR is impressive for having actually 100 rounds at 7 lbs. And is a good Materials and also parts dump. I have like 30 that them throughout several neighborhoods on 2 accounts.)

As for your other question, mine play format philosophy: pick your fights, nothing let the game pick because that you. This method low encumbrance, low stamina usage, and low sound. So for this style: near Combat is king, then blades, climate light blunts choose the Apocalypse bat. I never specialize in highlight or Swordplay as I choose the extra safety net the Endurance — mine default develop is Marathon + Stealth, and also the rest is up to that character’s preferences. If they can not Stealth or if they have Powerhouse, castle just come to be a dick-around character that I only take out as soon as they have actually character certain missions.
