Scythes are a type of sharp melee weapon featured in Dying Light introduced in The Following.


There are 16 types of Scythe in The Following:

  • Agronomist Scythe
  • Black Scythe
  • Countryman Scythe
  • Cutting-Edge Scythe
  • Extravagant Scythe (×3)
  • Fabulous Scythe (×2)
  • Farmer's Scythe
  • Grazier Scythe
  • Legendary Scythe
  • Rancher Scythe
  • Reaper Scythe
  • Red Cut Scythe
  • Rust-Free Scythe
  • Sharp Scythe
  • V-Slice Scythe
  • Yeoman Scythe


  • In real life, Scythes are agricultural tools used for moving grass or reaping crops. Scythes are also quite similar to Sickles in real life too, as both function very similarly.
  • Oddly, the Sickles in-game contain a rather modern and unique design, rather that the traditional look of being a long and curved blade at the end of a long pole attached to either one or two handles. While the Sickle contains the modern look, there are survivors seen in The Following with the traditional sickle.
