Swords are melee weapons which can be divided into 2 basic categories: Shortswords, and Broadswords. Shortswords have a very limited range and attack with a horizontal stabbing motion instead of an arc. Broadswords are swung overhead, which makes it easier to defeat flying and jumping enemies than shortswords.
Yoyos[edit | edit source]
Yoyos are melee weapons that are flail-like, and when thrown, seek after the player's cursor.
Spears are melee weapons that have decent range (somewhat better than swords), but attack using a stabbing motion (like a shortsword, except that spears can be aimed). Spears also have a good chance of hitting targets more than once, especially large enemies.
Boomerangs are melee weapons that come back to the player after being thrown. Together with Yoyos, they provide the earliest distance attacks that benefit from melee bonuses.
Flails are melee weapons that consist of an object linked to the player by a chain, which can either be thrown or fired. Thrown flails can be suspended around the player indefinitely, whereas launched flails immediately return to the player.

These are melee weapons that possess unique means of attack.
