There are a variety of weapons to choose from in Project Zomboid. There are three types of weapons: melee, ranged, and consumables.
Melee weapons have durability and they do not use anything except durability. Their range is about the same size as the length of the weapon. Melee weapons are the most frequently used due to their low noise. The melee weapons are listed from worst to best.
- Butter Knife
- Wooden Plank
- Nailed Plank
- Kitchen Knife
- Baseball Bat
- Spiked Baseball Bat
Ranged weapons have a larger rage and consume ammo and create noise. However, they are more powerful than melee weapons.
Consumable weapons are ranged, and are one-use. These weapons do not create any noise.
