Melee Combat Explained

Melee combat is a secondary mechanic in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Overall, Ranged Weapons will still be your main source of damage. Dedicated melee builds are probably not going to be a thing outside of some odd builds and legendary items.

Whenever you whack most targets with a melee attack, they’ll stagger backwards, giving you a chance to get your bearings, load up that next clip, and get back into the action.

Slashing while sliding is possible and the game will extend your slide a little bit, if, it then allows you to connect the hit.

You can perform small combos by repeatedly pressing the melee button.

Because Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is very offense-focused the Melee Combat doesn’t have any defensive parrying mechanics.

Melee weapons, with the exception of the two-handed blades, have a “glide” to their attack, meaning you can strike an enemy with a melee attack before they’re close enough to do the same to you

Hilt Mods add Combat Synergy

Melee does have great synergy with other gameplay mechanics. You can easily integrate it into your combat loop by using specific perks, skills, or status effects. For example, arrow bolts could weaken enemies to melee attacks but could also work vice-versa in conjunction with other combat mechanics.
