I mean, they’re great looking. And possibly fun for those who like to role play. But 99% of the time they are useless because a bow/crossbow/AK is 100x better and easier to find/craft.
Especially considering they’re all just modifications of each other. You all swing them and they all do ‘x’ amount of damage. There isn’t even much uniqueness to them aside from their appearance.
Am I wrong in thinking that the dev’s time could be better spent working on other things? Or do you think they have something planned to make melee more viable?
