Images of melee weapons, such as knives, daggers, swords, polearms and other weapons. This subcategory can also include concealed/assassin weapons that are used like melee weapons.


Due to the existence of personal shield generators, the Dune universe has a more overt emphasis on melee fighting than most other science fiction settings. However, personal shields aren't safe to use in every environment (e.g. on Arrakis/Dune, they attract the planet's sandworms), necessitating variations in melee weapon usage and tactics (as shields no longer guarantee protection from lasguns or projectile weapons).
