Introduction Edit

Melee Weapons might seem insignificant in a first person shooter game like Alliance of Valiant Arms, but there is a purpose for a knife. That purpose is to be used as a last resort option especially if the individual ran out of ammunition or vice versa, they do want to save ammunition and still defend themselves, or for being stealthy in a situation.

However, Infection camo I, Infection camo II, Camouflage ST, provide 25% protection against melee damage. Although, it is proven that the Uniform category of the armor will protect the individual from both explosion and melee damage. Another fact is that, gloves can increase damage to melee and increase accuracy when shooting a firearm.

There are currently 3 weapon types for melee, short ranged, medium ranged, and long ranged. Each weapon has it's specific ROF, damage, accuracy, and mobility. These factors make the weapon's specific usage.

Trivia Edit

  • Some players may think the Arisaka can perform a melee attack due to having a bayonet attachment, but it is only cosmetic. The right-click option zooms in iron sight for better accuracy for the bullet(s) when fired.
  • Also, the AK-47 Gold Snake, which does look like it would have a melee attack such as it's other variant AK-47 Black Snake but, it does not and it will zoom in instead of an melee attack.
  • There are more skins released for Bats compared to any other weapon category.
  • The fastest melee weapon is the Folding Knife and the Liquid Blade, it has a RoF of 29, which is the highest compared to any other melee weapon. However, despite the fact that both the Red Slasher and the Jason Chain Saw both have a RoF of 70, the Folding Knife and the Liquid Blade are seen to be the fastest overall.
  • The Uchigatana has a unique ability to hold the right click attack option before swinging at a target. Thus, making this one of the most overpowering melee weapons in-game.
  • Sledge Hammer, Panzer Shovel, and Blitz Panzer Shovel are currently the only melee weapons with a different slash mark. For example, if a player were to hit a wall or the floor it will show an imprint of the hammerhead itself instead of a slash mark.
