Most legendary items work fine on Level 40, however, when you are climbing those additional Chaos Levels, you want to have gear that destroys. Therefore, you want to farm these Melee Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
The Goblin Pickaxe is manufactured by Bonk and is part of the base game. This legendary melee weapon is great because it provides you with Gold, something that is very useful in the game. However, there are other features that place this item on the list.
Whenever you pick up gold, you gain increased Movement Speed, Spell Cooldown Rate, and Action Skill Cooldown Rate for a brief moment and this boost stacks 4 times. All-round great stats to increase as it offers you great benefits to lift your build to a higher level.
You can obtain the Goblin Pickaxe randomly as a World Drop or from the Chaos Bunnies. However, you can also farm Pigwart who is located in Mount Craw.
The Ragnarok is manufactured by Torgue and is part of the base game. This sword will fire a ranged projectile every time you swing this weapon. The projectile also attaches a sticky bomb to an enemy that explodes after a duration.
Personally, I’m not really a player that goes into melee range that often. Having a melee weapon that shoots projectiles is awesome as you still get some range with it.
You can obtain the Ragnarok randomly as a World Drop or from the Chaos Bunnies. However, you can also farm The Maker who is the 4th hidden boss located in the Chaos Chambers.
Salt and Battery
The Salt and Battery is manufactured by Bonk and is part of the Glutton’s Gamble DLC. This Melee Weapon has 2 unique hilt mods that have great synergy with each other.
One Hilt Mod will increase your Melee Critical Chance until you hit a crit, then it resets and you can start stacking all over again. However, the second Hilt Mod will create a Dagger Storm on every Critical Melee Hit. A very powerful combination and you can get another common Hilt Mod on top of that.
The Salt and Battery unlocks on Run 2 of Glutton’s Gamble DLC. After that, you can get it as a random World Drop, the Wheel of Fate, or Imelda the Sand Witch.
The Snake Stick is is manufactured by Kleave and is part of the base game. This Melee Weapon will spawn Hydra Companion every time you hit an opponent. You can summon 3 Hydras with this item.
As I’m playing a Deadshot, therefore, I’m already summoning multiple Hydras through the Dark Hydra skill. Having more minions to do my dirty work is great.
You can obtain the Snake Stick randomly as a World Drop or from the Chaos Bunnies.
The Peg Leg is manufactured by Bonk and is part of the base game. This Melee Weapon increases your Movement Speed and Reload Speed. That’s why this item is also popular in some builds as you can do fun stuff with it.
Great weapons will carry you so much. What you really want to do is create an awesome character build because the synergies between the items and your skill trees are what push you to the next level.
