Since alliance is going to feature an obscene number of highly authentic weapons, what about authentic hand to hand combat to go along with? This is another great place opportunity to alliance to outdo other games!

I'd be happier with the ability to use bayonets, some knives (Fairbairn-Sykes Command Dagger :x), smashing someone with the butt of a rifle, or pistol whipping.

Idk about hand to hand combat - it always turns out to be sort of, well, odd in FPSs.

We think you'll enjoy how we plan on handling combat of a non-ballistic nature. You shouldn't expect any magic knife/shovel insta-kills, though the Chauchat was a formidable bludgeoning tool. :)

Let's hope there will be a default butt stroke/pistol whip/smash 'em with your gun option :)

Something context based would be very cool. Like if someone melees you, you can block the blow if you melee before their shot connects. That way, you would be encouraged to use some stealth. Since weapons fire will have location based damage, it would be awesome if melee worked in a similar way. For example, hit someone in the head to disorient someone. It's odd how in most games the weapon that's being used to melee doesn't make a difference. You would think that a rifle, being much longer, would allow you to strike from a further distance than something like an mp5. Damage would probably be affected too.

Im glad that there won't be any magical one hit melee kills, but I can't help but wonder how effective hitting someone with the butt of your weapon is going to be when they are wearing body armor. I mean, I can see bayonet's being really effective during the early 20th/19th century when body armor wasn't even issued to troops (hard to imagine these days), but I don't know how something like that would fair against plate armor.

Just some food for thought. :)

All you have to do is hit them in the sides or the face.

Haha can you imagine that online...

/in high pitched voice

My nuts! My nuts!

Nut shots may however have been rendered ineffective by new, cutting edge armor

Yep, it's real. The comments are the best part. :lol:

Theyve had armored underpants since Vietnam. A book a read, "A Rumour of War" by Phillip Caputo, mentions how no one would ever wear them cause they were so damn heavy and hot. And tended not to make any difference anyhow.
sounds like theyve improved upon the design though.

That will only work if you are faster than 80% of all snakes.
