While the Bat does less damage per hit than most other melee weapons, but it also attacks faster and it is wielded by the fastest class available, making it more effective than most. The Scattergun is generally the better option for its high damage at these ranges, but don't hesitate to switch to the slugger if your Scattergun's magazine is empty.
