A Cleaver is a melee weapon used by Hive Knights.[1]

In Update 1.1, a new random event was added to Old Russia and Ocean of Storms that allows Guardians to use a Hive Cleaver after killing Blade of Crota.[2] The controls to use this Cleaver are identical to the controls for using the Sword of Crota.

The Eris Morn bounty Cut Them Down requires use of the Cleaver.
