Just tossing in my 2 cent, I have been around since just about the beginning although I don't post often. The melee update took warframe from being an amazing game, to one where I feel like i'm constantly fighting with the controls. I understand not (remotely) everyone uses my set up, but if an option could be added back that removes the auto switch it would be amazing.
My set up:
Zenith: Pressing the secondary fire deploys a disc that switches the gun to a 1000000% pierce, semi auto, see heads through walls killing machine for 30 seconds.
Synoid Gammacor: simply for the energy regen every x amount of affinity
zaw with bleeding willow stance
All 3 were hurt by the update. In most situations I can shoot my gun and quick melee fluidly. The quick melee with polearms allows 100% full speed sprinting while attacking. After the update you switch to the actual combo which results in a stutter every 3rd attack. Now that you've meleed and you have your melee weapon out you notice that your timer has run out for your zenith, click the secondary fire button.. but wait your melee weapon is out so nothing happens. You have to right click to pull the weapon back out, then secondary fire. So where before I never had to switch weapons, now i'm being FORCED to manually switch weapons
Very similar with the gammacore, as previously I could run (full speed) melee killing while never thinking about a gun. Post update melee kills cannot count towards the affinity needed for the energy gain.
Please allow an option to return to never having to think about what weapon is actively showing.
