How do I get through melee-only?

Question

I'm trying to get through Neptune Junction, and there's a weird requirement that needs missions with only a melee weapon equipped. On the start of the mission, I end up equipping a gun, even if I equip a sword on the next try and don't use ranged weapons, it still doesn't count. How do I do this? I'm planning to use Limbo to speedrun spy missions, also need some advice on that

Melee only means exactly that:  you can't have anything but a melee weapon equipped.

As for Limbo in spy missions, I can't really help you there.  I use Ash.  Invisibility + being able to Teleport through force fields and other traps is very handy.

Every day I am amazed how good this community is.For such a question in any other game this poor soul would be bashed to the ground with his entire kin following...and then set on fire and many many other things. Thank you for being like that.

on topic: arsenal: unequip gun and rifle/shotgun/bow and use only your melee for 5 missions (like the rest of the answers)

You need to remove your Primary and Secondary weapons in the Arsenal to be eligible for that Junction objective.

Your companions do not count as weapons, therefore they will not block you from that objective. I suggest using a Sentinel to help you with ranged skirmishes, or an organic pet if opening lockers is your thing.

IIRC, only you have to equip no weapons other than melee. You can join a squad with other players (with guns) and just support them (or leech, if they are too fast for you to do anything).

Makes it pretty simple, if you can find other players on nodes you have unlocked.

Do note that some of the Uranus spy vaults require you to pop into shark wing mode.  Doesn't really change your ability to cheese them with Limbo though.  If you don't like or know the Uranus vaults you can use Limbo to cheese any mission type that doesn't require interaction with enemies.  Rescue and mobile defense and sabotage are all easily done without killing a single enemy.

You need to remove primary and secondary weapons from your arsenal before you start the mission. Go into the arsenal and click on your guns, go to the top, and select "None". Then take the melee you wish to use.

You have to equip "None" in your weapon slots in your arsenal. You can't bring any guns at the start of the mission.

Or use Ivara for both (speed running spy missions and doing the melee only missions).

She's the queen of spies after all and on top of that she has a bow that is part of her abilities which means that you can 'cheat' on the melee only requirement if you don't have a melee that is good enough.

Other possibilites to circumvent the melee requirement and that will give you ranged attacks are Mesa, Wisp, Khora, Wukong (he'll only have melee as well because you can't have a primary nor secondary) but he'll be helping out, and many more. Even Rhino can be beneficial with his stomp. On top of that I would suggest any decent sentinel with a great weapon (deconstructor, sweeper, vulklok) or a good attack kavat or kubrow.

And as others have mentioned, it isn't because you are only allowed to have a melee weapon that the rest of the squad can't bring firepower.

I believe this was already answered, but you need to go to your arsenal and remove all weapons except for melee. No primary weapon, no secondary weapon. Then you can complete the requirement.

Quick tip: you are the only one who has to meet the melee only requirement. Your teammates do not.

If you are refering to "Complete any 5 missions on Uranus with only your melee weapon equipped"

You need to takeoff anything else besides the melee weapon, at the arsenal, before the mission starts
