In Fallout 76 game, the wasteland of West Virginia is a pretty dangerous place. Even though usually, it’s best to keep yourself a good distance from the formidable monsters and creatures roaming this land, Fallout 76 ammo is pretty hard to find. Based on that fact, you’d better get your hands on the best melee weapons in Fallout 76 game has to offer in order to save some precious bullets when possible.
In the next several paragraphs, we have offered you a quick list of our top picks for the best Fallout 76 melee weapons, and a little further down explained exactly what it was about these that made these weapons stand out from the rest of the crowd. So, cut to the chase, and let’s dive right in.
In Fallout 76 Here Are The Best Melee Weapons (Weapons Listed In Alphabetical Order):
*Blade of Bastet
*Mr. Handy Buzz Blade
Let’s start off Blade Of Bastet:
You will need to join the Mistress of Mysteries firstly in order to get this melee weapon in Fallout 76 game, anyway, it’s certainly worth putting the effort in to get. The Blade of Bastet is one of the best one-handed melee weapons in Fallout 76 hands down, it has a whopping 53 ballistic damage and a medium speed, and what’s more, it even has increased armor penetration to boot.
The second one is Deathclaw Gauntlet:
What I mean is, when you are talking about the best melee weapons, it kind of goes without saying that the giant claw of one of the most powerful creatures of the wasteland would be there. The Deathclaw Gauntlet got 48 ballistic damage, and meanwhile, is a punching-type melee weapon.
But, it does have some shortcomings that you should keep in mind, namely its hefty weight of 10, and at the same time its required minimum and crafting level of 30. Once you get to level 30, you are going to be rocking a mean melee weapon in the game of Fallout 76.
The third one is Fire Axe:
Right now, just because it does not have some fancy names or insane stats, does not make this Fire Axe less awesome in the game. It’s got a low weight at 3, and its minimum required level to craft and wield is only 5.
And for that, you get a two-handed melee weapon that causes 42 ballistic damage per swing. And of course, it is a pretty slow swing, but it is perfect for dispatching Ghouls and Scorched. What’s more, be available at such a low level puts in its a league of its own as one of the best Fallout 76 weapons in early stages.
The fourth one is Meteoric Sword:
At the very first glance, the Meteoric Sword just looks like a rusty old sword, but the stats will remind you not to judge a book just by its cover. You can not craft the Meteoric Sword, and in fact, it’s only a potential reward for finishing the event ‘Lode Baring’, but if you do that, then you are in for a treat. With a weight of 0.3, and a damage of 36, this just has a tiny footprint in your stock, but also packs a punch.
Plus, it deals an additional 10% damage to some other players, Scorched, and Ghouls, and it has 50% more durability than any other sword in Fallout 76 game. If you want to use it, you will have to be level 20, but once you have got it, there is very else that is quite as effective at dispatching human-based enemies in this game.
The fifth one is Mr. Handy Buzz Blade:
So if the Fire Axe didn’t blow you away. Hmm, here is giant circular saw on the end of a Mr. Handy arm. Well, I believe that you are happy now, cause this two-handed melee weapon has a minimum level of 15, and it has a very fast swing speed. Moreover, to top it off, its damage stat is 51 of pure ballistic goodness.
Press down your melee button (RT/ R2) and you will thrust this towards your target and it will begin spinning and tearing through them. Add on its Electrified mod and it gets much stronger. In Fallout 76 this is an absolute beast of a melee weapon.
The sixth one is Power Fist:
In Fallout 76, the Power Fist is one the same level as the Deathclaw Gauntlet as one of the best melee weapons. It has a medium speed stat, and dishes out 48 ballistic damage to boot. Plus, it only has a carry weight of 3, which means, it’s not going to clog up your inventory if you make it your go-to melee weapon.
In Fallout 76 game, the only shortcoming to the Power Fist is, if you are going to craft it, you will need the Iron Fist Strength perk at level 2. Although, if you are into punching melee weapons, you probably might have invested in this already.
Last but not least, the seventh one is Super Sledge:
Apparently, this was a pretty tough one, because the standard Sledgehammer can replace the Super Sledge easily in our picks of the best melee weapons in Fallout 76 due to its sheer number of mods. However, the Super Sledge kind of sits in a league of its own when it comes to damage with a stat of 77. That is a damage stat that we have yet to see any other base melee weapon come so close to so far in Fallout 76 game.
Just like the Fallout 76 Power Fist, Even though the Super Sledge does have some crafting restrictions in that you will need the Slugger perk card up to level 2 in order to make it yourself. You will also need to be level 30 to both craft and then use it, which makes it unrealistic for players just starting out on their adventure.
