The Zvezdochka is one of the strongest melee weapons that you can get in the game right now. You can get this weapon relatively early on in the game right after you get out of Vavilov. Here, your task will be to find an exit from the village. The blueprints for Zvezdochka will be located in a chest on the second floor balcony.

This melee weapon’s appearance is more like a heavy gun. It has a motor mounted to the handle which makes the discs of the sharp saw spin. Ensure that you have enough metal parts as the Zvezdochka will require 19 superconductors and 15 chemistry materials to craft Zvezdochka.

One of the first melee weapons that you will encounter in the game is the Swede. Well, it resembles an ordinary axe and you might feel the need to get your hands on some better melee weapons. But let us tell you one thing, the Swede is actually one of those few weapons which you can carry later on in the game. This is because the axe has pretty balanced stats which you can further enhance with the right upgrades.
