What is the best melee for a starter player? Not exceeding MR5.

Xoris
Redeemer
Zaws
Atterax

Xoris would be my top pick, Atterax would be my lowest. All are good. Xoris is far stronger than anything else available at that Mastery Rank.

Doesn't matter. Something that doesn't have MK1 in its name. Mods/stances, especially on melee, are what makes or breaks them.

Assuming you had all the mods it's probably technically a Zaw that uses some sort of high faction standing parts. Otherwise to name a few that come to mind that are decent: Xoris, Skana, Mire, Galatine, Guandao, Nikana and Redeemer.

But again, it's mostly mods. Currently even "bad" melee weapons can be modded to work until the late activities in the game. Don't stress yourself quite yet. Use something you have a stance for.

I don't know... Broken War ? 

If only they removed the MR Locks on Syndicate Weapons then I would say the Telos Boltace just for its Passive....

Ofcourse Tonfa Class Weapons also have a guaranteed Slash Proc on their Heavy Attacks so that helps too....

Use what YOU like the most and feel most comfortable with using. Modding is key. I can use a normal Galatine to onehit Mobs in Steelpath 🤣

Oh right! that's a good point!

Broken War would be a very good option then.

Sometimes I get a new melee out of the forge to master it, slap colours on it, do a few missions just fine, then I'll take it to a sortie and think "huh, this thing needs a few too many hits to kill these physical enchancement enemies, that's a bit weird".

Then I'll check my arsenal and discover I've put no mods whatsoever on it.

 

The best melee is whatever you like using.

Oh.... Really ?

I didn't know that... 😝

I thought that since it's from a quest then it has no MR Lock

My personal pick for very early game would be the Heat sword. Easy to use, mod, forced heat procs on slam attacks, etc.

The other weapons suggested by fellow Tenno are also good recommendations ^^
