Surviv.io has a number of melee weapons ranging from knives to even frying pans. They can be very powerful in the beginning of the game, as they can defeat a weak gun (e.g. M9 or Model 94) easily with TONS of practice.

How to Find
Some melee weapons are easy to find, however, some melee weapons may be harder to find than others.
Wood Axe - In the tree log stump thingy.
Wood axe bloodstained - Can be found on the wall mount in cabin. However, the bloody wood axe wall mount may or may not spawn every game.
Hook - Can be found in treasure chests. Not a 100% spawn rate.
Bowie, Bayonet, Karambit, and Huntsman - Can be found in a knife crate. Their special variants may have a chance to spawn.
Drowned Karambit - Unlike the Prismatic Karambit, this Karambit cannot be found in a knife crate. It spawns in river crates with only a chance.
Pan - Can be found only in airdrops.
Fire Axe - In the corner of the fourth room in the Hatchet Bunker or in the reddish outhouse with a grayish toilet at the edge of the logging camp. It is currently unobtainable, as it was removed after the "Into the Woods" Update.
Katana- Found in the Greenhouse Bunker, can be obtained by solving 2 puzzles. It is really rare and there is only one katana in the game.
- In a png spritesheet found in the inspect element viewer, you can see two unused Karambits (See Karambit for details)
- There also exists a Pickaxe sprite, two theories are that it was the original concept for the Wood Axe, or that is part of an upcoming or cancelled update. The existence of an unused sound file called cave_mono_01 supports the latter theory, as pickaxes could be found in caves.
- The Fire Axe is overall a direct upgrade of the wood axe, but it is rarer. It was removed after the "Into the Woods" update.
- When point-blank with another surviv.io player, you can use a melee to finish an opponent off when out of ammo. However, this can be quite tricky and is only recommended for veteran/experienced players.
