List of Best Melee Weapons

  • Nikana Prime
  • Kronen Prime
  • Dual Keres Prime

Galantine Prime

Heavy blades shatter the paradigm of rapid ninja-style sword play by introducing the potential to just smash opponents. The Galatine Prime needs Mastery 13 and primarily does slashing damage. It is an upgrade of the standard Galatine, as are most prime weapons, with high damage and critical chance. When properly modified and paired with Ashe, it can one-shot anything that can be assassinated.

Nikana Prime

The Nikana Prime is widely sought after since it has one of the highest base damage of any one-handed melee weapon. To use this weapon, you must have a Mastery level of 12. Nikana Prime has the greatest critical chance and the second fastest attack speed of any nikana. The Nikana Prime hybrid build is ideal for builds that make use of elemental damage.

Stropha

The Stropha may be obtained via the Granum Void and the Jackal Assassination missions, and its use needs mastery level 10. Of all gunblades, this melee weapon has the highest base damage and critical chance. It fires a cone of high-impact damage in front of you. If you want to cleave groups of opponents in a single shot, this is the gunblade for you.

Swinging with Goals

Most weapons, even melee, become viable with the correct modifications. You may experience a strong desire to find the best early on. Using what you are given, on the other hand, may be more advantageous than clinging on to a favorite. Keep in mind that as new expansions are published, the best melee weapons to use in Warframe may change.

Since 1995, I have had an inseparable relationship with mobile games. More recently, my goal has been to bridge the gap between skill and critical thinking in video games. You don't have to be the best all the time to be the best. I'm here to prove it! I like competitive and casual, mobile and console and everything in between. World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Call of Duty and Apex are my current favorite games. Oh, did I mention that I love LEGO Star Wars games!
