Spiked Bat

This weapon deals 55 damage which is the lowest out of all four weapons, taking its speed into account. You will get this weapon for free whenever you respawn in a Bloodhunt match, so it’s a default weapon of sorts that everyone should know how to use until they get hold of a better one.

Fire Axe

The Fire Axe seems to swing even slower than the Spiked Bat, but it deals more damage. With 70 damage per hit, these two weapons have similar DPS. As you can take down some of your opponents with just one swing of the powerful axe, it seems to be the better option out of the two.

Scourge Blades

These are a pair of short swords with jagged edges that can slash away twofold at your enemies. You will be able to deal 30 damage per hit, and these sharp blades hit fast. The Scourge Blades have higher DPS than the last two weapons, which ranks it higher than them. You will also have the option to use a charged attack by pressing the alt-fire key with this weapon equipped, which comes in handy when you have a lot of enemies in front of you.


A strong contender against the Scourge Blades is the Katana which deals 70 damage per hit as fast as the blades. You have the ability to use Deflection by holding down the alt-fire key to block incoming hits to you and send them back to your opponent depending on the distance.
