Melee Combat Issue
New, WishlistPublic


Don't know if its a bug issue or purposely designed this way but it seems almost impossible to get melee hits with weapons like axes. Nothing ever registers and i can never land a hit.

Not to mention most every weapon besides the axes are so underpowered that they are useless. If you bash someone on the noggin with a fire extinguisher, they are going to be unconcious. Supermans mother would feel a hit like that.

It also takes about 20-30 stabs from a kitchen knife to bring someone down, Since when did they add PCP to the game?

only think that 1-shots zeds is firemans axe, all other weapons are suicidal.

The thing to remember with shovel or crowbar, is you do not 'aim' them like you would any gun or fists. The axe kinda arc's more 'top to bottom' so its kind of straight up. The crowbar and shovel swing in an arc 'side to side'. aiming a shovel directly 'center' to you (like you would aim a gun) will result in 'missing' more times than not.

Yeah, it feels like there is an invisible barrier between the player and the zombie. You can get around this by strafing around the zombie and attacking from an angle.

I also think walking into the zombie helps, but I'm not too sure.

suggested fix to the axe issue is to allow it to have some distance like what we had in the mod. I also recommend that an option to throw the axe or knifes ect. to give distance on zeds.

i have used screw driver axe and fire extinguisher i hsve also used sledgehammer and the only thing that didnt seem like it was bugged was the screw driver that killed zeds in like 4 very acurate and responsive stabs to the face

Especially with the splitting axe the actual point of impact is way of to the top right corner of the aiming point. That TOTALLY sucks...
