Mellee Weapons? I think it would be cool to get Swords and knives nohin to fancy.

And it would make Blur much more appealing

Maybe in future but there are advanced melee weapons (atleast one). I don't see why melee weapons wouldn't work in pve but in pvp not so well

you hit your enemy with your guns hilt. like you do in halo with the assult rifle.

stop insisting in melee combat in a shooter. fallen earth tried to do this and that failed.

melee in this game is more for close quaters when the enemy is almost dead, its a finisher move. or used to knock an enemy down / back and give u space.

there is a reason they wont give u pure melee weapons ITS A SHOOTER PEW PEW PEW

Melee of sorts could be kind of neat. I've contemplated in a game like this possibly bayonet attachments on guns, maybe even throwing knives that can also be used for melee stabs or slashes. Could fit.

Well, we CAN do melee (on PC it's F key). We don't have swords or knives to equip but my Outlaw has a knife on his chest for that badass look.

Well its a shooter, though I guess some melee weapons might be cool to add

Pure melee-weapons woulnd't make sense.
Borderlands showed, how it can work out. You make weapons with extra-blades attached, and they'll give you +50/+100/+200% melee-damage. Defiance is nearly 50% pure-Borderlands, so they can take this detail, too.

i hope they add bayonets as dlc that would be sweet

Better make sure you run right into my pumpgun with your sword.

The melee attack they already have implemented is way enough - only thing I can think about are various animations and damage effects if the weapon has attached a bayonet, like mentioned before.

I mean I wouldn't have a problem with a few. But Defiance is a shooter so I don't want to see the same amount of melee weapons as guns.

03-22-2013, 05:49 AM
Well I think it'll be cool to have a melee kill-scene. Like if the melee attack is strong enough to finish off the mob, then maybe there could be a melee kill action, involving knives or whatever. :D

you hit your enemy with your guns hilt.

It's called a stock.

There's actually 1 melee only weapon in the game. But it's a special weapon that can be found in co-op instances for example that has only a certain amount of uses. It can't be used outside instances.

03-22-2013, 06:51 AM
Ah the immortal connundrum, should i bring a knife to a gunfight? :p

03-22-2013, 07:09 AM
The question is will they put swords and what not into the game, I think I have seen Bayonets and there is one Melee weapon but it is an advanced weapon and it runs on a power source that will empty after X amount of uses, but will there be swords/knives? I don't think so, it would make Blur a game breaking ability

03-22-2013, 07:48 AM
There are a surprising amount of Melee oriented Perks, so, melee weapons shouldn't be out of the question.

I am not talking about wielding a sword and charging into battle, but when you go to actually melee people it would whip out said melee weapon and smack them.

03-22-2013, 07:54 AM
I wouldnt want them included in Defiance, but hey, to each their own

03-22-2013, 08:09 AM
I think any kind of melee in an FPS/TPS like this should only be used as a last resort. Making a blade stronger than the firearms you can use is something that doesn't settle well with me.
