The Melee weapons are for those who enjoy close quarters combat. New weapons were added immediately following Rush Team 2 beta testing. Melee weapons can be accessed by pressing 1 on your hotkey.
The Butterfly Knife is a weapon of choice for skilled melee fighters. It is a small weapon which has low accuracy, but does moderate damage, usually killing someone in two successful hits. The Butterfly Knife replaced the Combat Knife from the first game. It is available for players at level 10.
The Katana is available for use starting at level 5. It has been changed slightly from the first game. It has a faster fire rate, but does less damage. Its accuracy appears to have been upgraded.
The Wooden Bat is a new weapon introduced to Rush Team. As its name suggests, it appears to look like a baseball bat. It has the same properties as the Pipe Wrench: large, bulky, and deadly. The Wooden Bat had an exclusive weapon skin for Rush Team in October 2015. It replaced the Pipe Wrench from the first game. The weapon is available at level 1.
The Fire Axe has not changed very much since the creation of Rush Team 2. It does the same amount of damage as the Katana. Unlike the Katana, the Fire Axe is slightly heavier, and swing speed it slightly slower. It is available at level 1.
Fire Axe (VIP)Edit
The Golden Fire Axe is exclusive to VIP players. It is an upgraded version of the standard Fire Axe, with better accuracy and damage. It usually takes one swing to kill an enemy player. It also appears to be lighter than the standard Fire Axe. The Golden Fire Axe is available at any level as long as the player has VIP.
Similar to the Golden Fire Axe, the Metal Bat is only exclusive to players with the Weapon Pack. It is an upgraded version of the Wooden Bat. It usually takes one swing to kill an opponent. The Metal Bat is available at any level as long as the player has the Weapon Pack.
