Tier List for Melee Weapons in Atomic Heart

S-Tier Melee Weapon - Pashtet

The Pashtet is a large-bladed weapon that excels in versatility. It's not as bulky as the Swede, but it still packs more of a punch than the Fox or Zvezdochka. The attack speed of the Pashtet is its most valuable asset, though.

A-Tier Melee Weapon - Swede

Tried and true, the Swede is the first melee weapon that's given to you when you start playing Atomic Heart. While it might not be the best weapon when you start out, we find that it has an impressive level of improvement with upgrades. When fully suited up, it makes for the second-best weapon in all areas.

B-Tier Melee Weapon - Fox

While the Fox has some downsides, like low damage, it does still have enough charm to make it a B-tier melee weapon. It also presents the advantage of helping you regain energy after you upgrade the Fox. It can present itself to be a useful weapon for the right player, but we wouldn't recommend it as a number one for everyone.
