Melee is not working very well/at all
New, WishlistPublic


Melee Weapons are absolutely useless at the moment with the hitbox's either not registering when hit or something to that effect, I swung a crowbar a zombie about 20 times in first person weapon raised with the crosshair perfectly aimed with no hits registering, it's terrible, Please fix this.

I have this on exp. with several melee-weapons - but i assume this is due to lag since some zombie-hits register even if i am far away and the zombie faces another direction.

Also having this issue

Having this issue. Last 3 characters have died in fights with zombies using the fire axe due to hits not registering.

It's the ragdoll causing some of those hitboxes to not work properly that and the zombies can hit from MUCH further away.

It is significantly better in .48 (exp) but still not as reliable as .46. That may be due to server load/lag on the exp server because issues like zombies clipping through walls/floors/doors seems more of an issue on the exp. servers. Still, the zombie hit-boxes do seem to respond better in .48.

I've noticed this too while using a fireaxe to hit (or better, try to hit...) zombies. Playing on 0.48. It's a major issue and should be fixed ASAP.

Try hitting a zombie with a machete or knife and then come back and tell me its better. I DARE YOU.
