Obviously they would of said something about this in the build up to the game and yes, what would a melee weapon do against a gun? I was thinking when the future DLC's come out and more races are unlocked to play maybe a muscular type brute is available, A melee pack surely would add a whole new dimension of play. Any thoughts? Thanks.

i would love a knife mode in some PvP maps. the blur/cloak combo in such a map would be hella fun ^^ maybe a TDM kind of map too lol

Couldn't agree more, cloak with a knife would be a massacre :p

Check out the second last Trion Twitch video, He finds a melee weapon in the bunker ;-)

As cool as it would be, I wonder how truly effective it would be even with cloak. I mean there IS a reason melee has fallen out of most of combat. I guess it would depend on how quick your EGO powers recharge as to how effective it would be.

If we do get them, and they are effective, I hope we can get a hatchet. Though that might be inspired by a certain presidential vampire slayer. :p

Well, being that there's weap modification, I imagine we'll get bayonettes of some sort. What I'd really like to see is chainswords.

The video link I mentioned earlier (http://www.twitch.tv/trionworlds/b/358261369) twitch video link.

You want to fast forward to 4 hours, 6 min. 56 seconds. He picks up a melee weapon. They then explain about that particular one.

Yeah, that thing is badass... but it also looks like a rare weap.

Would love some swords or "lightblades" or throwing knives or Bayonets

It's always nice to have a weapon that doesn't take ammo. Especially considering how often the No Ammo warning comes up watching the Twitch streams.

Dual wielding a katana would probably make this game Goty in my opinion :P

I can't imagine being a badass without a Katana...

During the stream he called that glove thing a "super-weapon." So I'm assuming that it's an item you'll only find/use in very special occasions. Waiting for another stream this Friday that will show off some of those melee options and/or even mods like others are talking about to add a knife, spikes, etc.

Kind of curious if melee dmg is or will be effected by the weapon type used? I mean being pistol wiped hurts, but a rifle butt to the head is worse.

Well, I am a little curious, are they all Temporary weapons like the one in the live stream, or are there actual melee weapons you can add to your loadout?

Well here's one of those options I believe:

I can see it now, that gravity hammer looking weapon and a master Chief spartan 2 in game costume = Epic :D

I wouldn't be surprised if Spartan armor was an available as a limited time only virtual store outift.
