Not only does it does less damage than the Scythe, it also has a shorter reach-range, but a wider attack area which allows this weapon to swing up to 360 degree and kill enemies behind it.
Even though this weapon does less damage than the Scythe in Multiplayer, the hits from this weapon register more easily than the Scythe, making it a preferred melee weapon over the Scythe.
