Right now the melee weapons basically serve no purpose in this game other than the frying pan being able to deflect bullets while sheathed. There are basically no situations where a melee weapon is used due to the abundance of guns you can find and how difficult it is to get up close to somebody without them noticing. The only time I land and quickly grab a machete to chase someone in the building as they are reloading a pistol, it takes 3 or more clean body slashes to kill them which is more than enough time for them to just backpedal and shoot you unless they are noob/lagging and miss a full clip on you, melee weapons need to be a 1 or 2 shot or they will continue to be completely obsolete in 99% of situations in this game, and don't tell me I need to headshot somebody with a machete to 1 shot them as if I am not jumping, I basically need my crosshair aimed at the sky in order to achieve that. I body slash someone 2-3 times and they just reload and shoot me, this is ridiculous considering a jumping punch to the head can 1 shot somebody.
Salty Fox posted a topic in ArchivesLet me paint a picture for you. One I'm sure many of you have experienced. You drop from the plane, you pull your rip cord and make your way to what seems to be a clear area. Nobody has spotted you so far, good. You finally manage to loot all you need for an intimate round in PUB. You remain un-spotted, the numbers in the top right tick down, "soon", you you say with much elation. "Soon, the much coveted Chicken Dinner will be mine". Suddenly you notice something, after what feels like a lifetime the number 10 is staring at you from the corner of your screen. Your heart beings to hammer with antici....pation. Heavy shots ring out to your right, a big boy gun, a fast "rat-tat-tat" to your left, a Scar-L. As you sit there, in your cover, what feels like an impregnable fortress, waiting, watching as the time counts down, You down enough pills and energy drinks to kill 5 men. The feared blue wall of gas flies past you, chunking your health at what feels to be a ludicrous speed. Risking death, you sprint to the next AO, praying nobody sees you. Your health, still ticking down, faster, faster! Success! You made it, right to the edge of the gas of death, with but a sliver of health, where not but a mouse could find solace in having such a minuscule amount. You scan behind you, nothing, surely nobody could be in the gas of death in the top 10? You pop a FAK and gain your bearings, it's time to move forward, time for you to claim your crown! "Tak-tak-tak", betrayed by the gas of death that so eagerly sought to end you, a player emerges out of the gas of death to shoot you in the back and thus ending your chance for the sought after Chicken Dinner. TL;DR; The gas of death needs a boost, it feels underwhelming, especially in the top 10. I've played the line game perfectly, nearly getting killed by the gas (as intended), only to have some player who shouldn't be alive pop out to shoot me inside the safe zone. If I nearly died, how could they be alive? If I barely make it, and I watch behind me for a good 20 seconds, there is no reason anything should save a player who willingly stayed in the gas that would have killed me from full health and boosters out the ass.
