The Rusty Sword is the first melee weapon encountered by the player in Dead Cells. The player starts every game with the Rusty Sword equipped unless the Random Melee Weapon upgrade has been unlocked from the Collector. Once the upgrade is purchased, the Rusty Sword is relocated to a secret wall tile in the starting room.
