All Battlefield 1 Melee Weapons

by xxoACEoxx20th October 2016

Lets take a closer look at all Battlefield 1 melee weapons.

Roughly speaking, there are three distinct melee weapon classes in Battlefield 1, each with their own pros and cons: knives, clubs, and bladed/specials. They primarily differ in three stats: the speed at which you can swing them, the damage they deal with each hit that connects, and how easy they are to perform a brutal takedown with.

So while a knife, for example, deals a low amount of damage, it is by far the quickest to perform consecutive swings with, and it has a much bigger takedown zone than other melee weapon types. This means that if you go for a stealthy kill from behind, a knife will give you the biggest possible zone behind an enemy player from where a brutal takedown can be performed. Clubs are jacks of all trades: they deal medium damage at medium speed, and have a medium-sized takedown zone. The bladed/special melee weapons such as the hatchet, shovel, and pickaxe are the heaviest hitters, but also the slowest. They also have the smallest takedown zone.

You start the game having access to a simple club, shovel, and knife. But as you progress, you will have the ability to equip more embellished or specialized melee weapons. Some of them can even be used to cut barbed wire, destroy wooden barricades, or damage light vehicles.
