    • considering that Bungie has already announced that the Fallen Captain is a very fast, close combat enemy (and also the fact that he obviously has two swords that seem to have some kind of energy around them) I would expect that we would be given some kind of last resort to fend them off, even with something more CoD knife style. I personally wouldn't mind having some kind of primary melee weapons in Destiny, but they can't just be thrown in there like "Well why the hell wouldn't a large armored space soldier with advanced technology suddenly pull out a flaming katana and bull-rush a Cabal?" They have to make it flow with the rest of the game.

      • I would REALLY like to see some melee weapons as well. There's something satisfying about running down an opponent while he empties a clip into you and cutting him down with a sword/hammer. Or an axe if we wanna get REALLY manly ;)

        In one of their updates they mentioned fighting of aliens with a sword they got drone someplace called the grotto. I personally would like to see some kind of energy ax.

        At this this moment in time we the community are unsure if there will be any melee weapons due to that fact that there hasn't been any footage of player held melee weapons, the only melee weapon we have seen was the hunters knife which hasn't really been categorized into any one set of weapons and is more or so just the "knife" like in COD games. However there is still hope since we have seen enemies such as the Fallen wielding energy sword like weapons. We can only hope and believe in Bungie ;)

      • Return of the plasma sword and gravity hammer? How about a plasma whip that can slice off body parts? That would actually be pretty cool.

          • There are two basic types of melee attack that can be implemented: Secondary and Primary. Each has their own set of challenges when trying to balance the weapons into a game. A Secondary melee attack is common to shooters. This melee attack is always available, regardless of the primary weapon used. It is generally more powerful than your primary attack, and scaled depending on the average length of an engagement. This type of melee can be seen in Call of Duty. A Primary melee attack is common to RPGs. This melee attack is only available when the player has a melee weapon (or sometimes no weapon) equipped. Since this attack eliminates the player's ranged attack ability, play has to be balanced in such a way that those with melee weapons have a fighting chance and can actually approach enemies without always being killed. This type of melee can be seen in Fallout. Halo 2 is a good example of a game with both types of melee. Not only did it have a secondary melee attack that was always available, it also had the energy sword, which was a melee only primary weapon. I can't really say what kind of melee Destiny will have. We know so little about the gameplay, that I'm really not sure what would fit. If they go the CoD route (possibly suggested by ADS), where you cans die relatively quickly (it really only takes 1-4 bullets to kill someone) I would expect a secondary melee attack only. If they go the Halo route, where it takes much longer to die, (there are shields and it can take almost an entire clip to kill someone) they could more easily include primary melee weapons.

          • I'm hoping for a hammer or the option to use my fist or physical techniques whenever up close and personal. Big fan of close quarters combat. Something like mass effect 3 co-op krogan gameplay with the obvious fps perspective.

          • I'm extremely fond of knifes, but no matter the type of melee weapon I'm seriously hoping that we get some awesome assassination animation's similar to what we got in Halo Reach

          • I hope it's not just a different melee attack for a different class. I wan't actual melee weapons that you can loot.

              • I like a system where you always have a melee available (bash them with your gun!) but there are also epic designated melee weapons (grifball, anyone?). I really like cool melee weapons, but anyone who has played fallout can tell you how frustrating it is to not be able to melee when you have a gun out.
