(Not sure If I'm forgetting any.)




-How often do you play melee/knife games?
-A lot, it's my favorite/main mode.

-Which one is your favorite and why?
Axe, just overall beastly.

-Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
TDM-Arena SND-Compound FFA-Port

-How would you balance/change each of the melee weapons if you could?
Knife-Leave as is
Axe-Leave as is
Shovel-Fix the lag and lower slash(left click) damage.
Katana-Leave as is, it's weight and slow hits more than balance its range.
Kris-Make the slash(left click) weaker, slower, or shorten range. Give right click more range, I feel it's sad that left click has the same range.
Nightmare blade-Haven't used
Kukri-Make slower overall or slightly heavier.
Wrench-Haven't used
Machete-Haven't used

  • Kukri seems to be the best in my opinion

    Good Range

    High Damage

    Light

    what's not to like?

    You forgot Fast melee attacks.

    Weapon balanced against each other: Ordered in effectiveness and ease of use.
    Kukri>Wrench>Kris>Shovel>Axe>Machete>Nightmare Blade>Katana>Knife.
    (Gods swears knife is better then katana tho)

    Forgot wrench :p

    Also, katana is pretty easy to counter. A decent knife user could easily take out any katana user.

    Wrench is number 2.

    In my experience the knife player needs to be much better then the katana to win consistently. Katana is hit or die. It's high power, long range, and wide melee means death to the knifer most of the time, but if katana misses then katana will lose.

    Skill>weapon any day.

    Katana just slightly easier to use and more effective then knife assuming players of equal skill.

    -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    Very often, at least three games per day when I play.
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Kukri Royal Dragon - Nice skin, fast right click
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    TDM - Ship TDM
    SND - Port SND
    FFA - Black Widow FFA

    Didn't answer the last question, not enough time.
  • TheDotKomTheDotKom Holy Mage
    Only things i've tried out was the Axe, Shovel, Katana, and Knife -_-"
    I say the Axe and knife are the good ones for me though :)

    I meant I forgot to put wrench on my list and your post reminded me to put it in.

    But a knife user can move much faster and be able to dodge katana easily, then just go for the kill.
    I don't think I have been hit by katanas that often. If a knife user has decent reflexes then katan user doesn't stand a chance. Unless the knife user is trapped into a corner or narrow spot and pre-stabs/slashes.
  • Bumping...
    Do you guys think Kris and Kukri are over powered.

    -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    A lot.50% of the time,since I want the last badges as fast as possible. :P (currently grade b lvl 3,sfc 6th)

    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Machete,it has a very fast right click,making it perfect for headslashing.The left click is just epic after u get used to the delay and can use it properly.

    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    TDM:Sewers(can get at least 80 kills easy)
    Port S&D
    Port FFA

    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?
    Knife /
    Axe /
    Shovel-Change it so that it wouldn't lagshot kill anyone who's 10 meters away.
    Katana /
    Kris-Remove this piece of overpowered ****.
    Nightmare blade /
    Kukri /
    Wrench /
    Machete-make it 1 a hit slash to the head if someone uses a helmet.

    How often do you play melee/knife games?
    Usually when it's on daily mission.

    Which one is your favorite and why?
    Kris because I love pwning people with Kris, and them saying that Kris is a noob OP weapon.

    Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    TDM = Arena, or Ship
    SND = Port
    FFA = Black Widow

    How would you balance/change each of the melee weapons if you could?
    Knife - No Changes
    Axe - No Changes. Leave as it is. It's better that way.
    Shovel - No Changes.
    Katana - Reduce some time from using the right click in mouse.
    Kris - Hehe, love to troll with this weapon, so leave as it is.
    Nightmare Blade - I haven't used one, so no comment.
    Kukri - Haven't used one yet, but leave as it is. OP weapon.
    Wrench - Didn't waste my coupons, so didn't used it.
    Machete - Leave as it is, better that way.
  • knife is the best :D but kurki is also good :D
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games? Pretty much once every CF session
    -Which one is your favorite and why? Kris X-mas, great for slash HS and looks pretty nice
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.- Sewers is pretty nice unless your against a team with not many players who camp up, not a big fan on knife only SND I think it lasts too long xD
    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could- I wouldn't really change any because I think most melee weapons are already OP in certain ways, but OP is good if you own them xD
  • Usually play knife for a few, until I get tired of being kicked.

    Hmmm, Knife and Axe are the only two I use, others seem like a waste of time to me.
    SND: Any map
    TD: Any map besides Sewers
    FFA: Port

    I wouldn't change a thing about them, anyone is lethal with any weapon just as long as there good. If you play knife often I'm sure you've seen me once or twice.
  • The best melee, I think Kukri and Kris, sometime Axe is kind of top to me
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    Not very often , I just play GM
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Shovel Hallo is my fav cause it looks sooo cooll
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    Area <> Port <> Black Widow
    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?
    I dont want to change anything
  • NonnenOldNonnenOld Royal Heir
    Oh god.. Kukri isn't better than axe, because the kukri never makes one hit HS through a bullet helmet.
    The knife is better than Nightmare-Blade, Katana (not in GM), Kukri,.Machete and shovel.
    Why? Because you can beat everything of those 1 vs 1 with a knife.

    The axe and kris will always win against a knife user.

    Learn how to use it :o
  • I use knife since I never bought zp.
    So I barely play GM as BL or knife match...
    But when I played yesterday, to my surprise I got 52-27 ;)

    Kris is too OP in my opinion. The rest is fine.
  • SpyingsSpyings Apprentice
    Melee

    -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    ALOT. I'm a knifer.
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    My axe cuz its perm
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    I like all of them but sewers... sewers is way too small...
    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?
    I dont want to change anything
  • I have most of the melee weapons, I would too say that the Kukri is the most decent one, which made me mad when I didn't win the from the BM. But other than that, Axe would be my next choice.
  • Knife and Katana. It's the only two not remotely OP.
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    2 times a day

    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Shovel cause of its long range

    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    TDM- sewers
    FFA - none
    SND - EagleEye

    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?
    Knife - 1 hit kill with long shot more often
    Axe - none
    Shovel - none
    Katana - Faster in all aspects
    Kris - Already beast
    Nightmare blade - Never tried
    Kukri - Less reach
    Wrench - NA
    Machete - NA
    (Not sure If I'm forgetting any.)
  • SunDXSunDX Worthy
    Kukri definitely... no discussion there. Along with the axe of course, cauz nobody wants to be treated as "kukris Noob" all the time right? anyways, it's always fun to pwn with Kukri in GM.
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    Very often, almost all of them (trying to earn knife badge)
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Kukri Royal Dragon - Nice skin, one hit kill for both right and left click and AXE
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    Arena- to test skill and recruit
    Sewers- for fast kills
    FFA - Black Widow FFA
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    at least twice everyday
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Axe cuz i own one :D
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    Arena - THERE IS NO ESCAPE
    Downtown - theres where all the murder happens
    blackwidow - i think its the smallest
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?

    Spend at least 1-2 hours a day just playing knife only modes.

    -Which one is your favorite and why?

    Knife, fast slash and stab can one hit sometimes when stabbed through the chest.

    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.

    TDM - Sewers (Easy to camp at bottom and wait.)

    SND - Ankara

    FFA - BW

    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?

    I wouldn't change anything about the melee weapons. I find them easy to out maneuver when you figure out the range for them.
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games?
    Not that often, but does BL in GM count :3
    -Which one is your favorite and why?
    Wrench, nice power + fast swing/recovery
    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA.
    EagleEyes
    Monaco
    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?
    Knife
    Axe
    Shovel + (get rid of lag hits)
    Katana + (make it layer)
    Kris + (less damage per slash, or make it swing slower)
    Nightmare blade
    Kukri
    Wrench
    Machete
  • -How often do you play melee/knife games? not much since I got the last assassin badge

    -Which one is your favorite and why? My 3 perm axes. Kukri is sort of the best though.

    -Favorite melee map for TDM, SND, and FFA. Powerplant, Port, Port

    -How would you balance/change each of the following melee weapons if you could?

    -Knife Nothing. it's fine
    -Axe basically perfect
    -Shovel fix the lagged animation
    -Katana make it a bit lighter
    -Kris Remove completely from game :| Stupid wizard's sword looks wrong in an fps like CF
    -Nightmare blade Never tried it. Think it's almost silent though when I've seen them in GM
    -Kukri Most OP Melee I've used in the game. Should probably slow down the recovery on the right click. It's just ready to go tooooooo fast.
    -Wrench Never tried it. Probably too fast like the kukri though
    -Machete Speed up the right click. It hits 10 minutes after you right click, ffs. I guess this is supposed to balance it's huge dmg but the slight increase in slash damage is basically pointless since either way it's 2 slashes to the body like most other melees other then the knife
  • I play knife mode everyday, barely gun since I'm hard hearing. IMO, all melee weapons are OP beside Knife and Katana, both take skills. I use my smexy ax since ZM have gotten little bit easier, people can get kris now.
