Hunters knife and melee separate buttons?

Yes

73

No

59

Just an idea but what if hunters throwing knife was mapped to R1 and melee was mapped to circle, which means crouch could be mapped to r3.

  • Or you know, learn to time melee uses better. Not every issue needs to be solved on the games end.

    • Maybe it could be just the same button, but you hold it down for special melees, and a simple push for basic melee.

    • A hold melee to ready knife, release to throw, reload to cancel would be my preference. Sick of wasting knives spamming melee at a control point.

      • I think, from playing call of duty a lot, that melee should be R3 and the throwing can stay the same. R3 has no setup yet so I think Bungie could easily change that rather than changing some set up. Maybe have a controller setup option for different play styles.

        Agreed except I prefer to keep melee at r1

        This would be good for the other two melee specials, because sometimes you want to save if for that enemy further up, but then you use it and then it it takes another punch to finish, or in the crucible it could mean death and between 100 and 400 points lost

      • I agree. The coding can glitch and instead of stabing it throws a knife or vise versa. With the knife being on a cool down its something to be used at specific times and when its wasted because of game parameters, poor network connection, or to many enemies being in the area its no good. Say your taking over a flag and two enimies come at you. You attempt to engage the one that jumped ontop of you with your melee but because the other enemy is at range and inside the target area so you throw your knife instead because the game parameters were met for throwing a knife. Now this is a problem because neither enemy are dead and you are no longer a threat because your about to get knifed yourself. Just a possible scenario for giving the player more control over their character.

      • I catch your drift. This is annoying occurrence that happens at least once every round with me. Most of the times they land but I hate that uncertainty, and then of course if you miss you're ass out on a knife and you're probably dead. I feel you bro

      • That is actually a minor annoyance I've found a tad bit... Well annoying xD I play with the "Green Thumb" layout with R3 as my melee and it sucks when I sometimes try to melee an enemy with the occasionally off chance I throw a throwing knife instead in the middle of the panic. I'd say double tap would be an option but just an idea .-.
