I have a butter knife!
So, I was digging through my items and I saw a bunch of stuff relating to melee. I says to myself, hey me, let’s try a melee build. I grabbed everything with a + percentage buff and took off. M4 baby!!! Stabby stabby. Nothin. All right, it’s M4, let’s drop it to M1. Stabby stabby stabby stabby…stabby?
Ok ok, TVHM, stabby stabby, meh.
Melee is a joke. Unless you are playing Amara (of course). Why is this. The game would flow so much better if you actually did some damage with melee. Even if you aren’t spec’d in it, it would be fun to run through enemies and finish them off with a good ol slicy slicy without them having to stab them like Julius Caesar. I don’t understand why there is a huge bonus to COV weapons melee and it’s not a viable source of damage.
Meanwhile, the base melee damage of Amara is insane. I know who would win in a knife vs. hand fight.
I think we should get more out of guns that have a bonus to melee, or else what’s the point? (See what I did there). Melee isn’t cutting it.
