We need some more melee weapons for this to work though
I can think of a few melee weapons
Axe. Sword. Knife. Staff. Gunblade (works melee and ranged). Bow (melee and ranged, seeing as one can hit an enemy over the head with the bow). Katana (different than swords in most video games). Hammer. Whip.
And, as Mvskoke has said, chainsaw.
Is that enough melee weapons?
