Sarna News: Bad 'Mechs - Hoplite

Category:Melee BattleMechs

This list catalogs all canon BattleMech articles on BTW with Melee weapons, including Swords or Hatchets as well as the more esoteric weapons used in the Solaris arena fights. All these 'Mechs have at least one variant with a Melee weapon. Also note that OmniMechs can mount melee weapons in pods.

While most 'Mechs are equipped with ranged weaponry, melee weaponry is also both feasible and useful, especially due to a lack of noticeable heat buildup.
