Melee Weapons are hand-to-hand weapons (such as swords or war hammers) often used by the Force Psyker, the Void Psyker, or the Cyber Ninja. Melee Weapons have the unique benefit of Shield Piercing, meaning that a varying amount of damage circumvents Shields entirely. Melee Weapons have 3 distinct classes:
Typically lacking in damage compared to others of this class, but compensated for in speed.
Melee Weapons that are dual-wielded. Accuracy requires skill. A middle ground between Light & Heavy Melee.
The slowest weapons in their class, but also the most damaging.
