Weird West Wiki

Melee weapons consist of various types of knives, blades, blunt weapons, and tools. Like Ranged Weapons, they have five different rarities: normal (1 star), copper (2 stars), silver (3 stars), gold (4 stars), and legendary (5 stars); and can be upgraded using copper, silver, and gold nuggets. Legendary weapons cannot be upgraded from gold weapons, and need to be bought from stores, looted from silver chests (low chance), or found in Treasure Hunt quests (low chance). Melee weapons are silent and allow the Protagonist to perform one-hit kill or knock-out on unaware enemies, depending on whether the weapons are lethal or non-lethal.

Improvised Weapons[]

Certain tools and junk items can be used as improvised weapons. Although they don't deal much damage, some of them can stun enemies and are non-lethal weapons. Shovels and Pickaxes can be upgraded to gold rarity with a cost of 30 gold nuggets apiece, and actually have much higher damage than the gold equivalent of other melee weapons. The gold shovel, in particular, is great for a non-lethal playthrough due to its high damage, long reach, and fast attack speed.
