What counts as a Fortnite melee weapon and how to use them

Knowing what Fortnite melee weapons are is really important if you need to complete a challenge that requires you to deal damage or destroy things with one. Unlike the vast armory of Fortnite guns, there are very few non-firearm options for when things get up close and personal, so scavenging a melee weapon out on the battlefield while going after one of the melee-focused Fortnite quests can be tricky as you’ll need to know what counts as one. Thankfully, all players have access to the Harvesting Tool in Battle Royale, which is a huge help. Here’s what you need to know about what counts as a Fortnite melee weapon and how to use it.

There have also been a number of special melee weapons available throughout the course of the seasons, including the Mandalorian’s Amban Rifle, the Kingsman umbrella, and Wolverine’s Claws. However, all of those were tied to previous in-game characters and events, so have subsequently been vaulted. Although, as of Season 3 Chapter 3, Fortnite Darth Vader has entered the fray, and you can defeat him to pick up his iconic red Lightsaber. It would be a lot of effort to get just to complete some challenges, but it is highly effective against enemy players.

Future weekly quest challenges may also require the use of Fortnite melee weapons, so don’t forget our advice for anything that says “melee” – if in doubt, use the Harvesting Tool!
