Melee Suggestion: Melee For Primary Weapon Slot.

Thought it would be cool if you could select one of your melee weapons as a primary weapon in place of primary guns.

 

This way you could have a primary and secondary melee weapon at once.

 

Secondary melee would operate the same way melee operates now, but when you go to your primary melee, it would operate much much differently. Maybe even like my other thread:

 

   In this mode you would equip your melee weapon and actually have it out just like your Guns. In thise mode you would do much more damage and have a boost to deflection, movement speed, attack speed and blocking absorption.

 

To top it off, you could introduce fighting styles. Examples being things like REAL (or cool made up) fighting styles in martial arts.

IE: An offensive fighting style Type 1 gives you no blocking bonuses but gives you more attack power.

Offensive fighting style Type 2 gives you no blocking bonuses as well but gives you more attack speed and run speed.

 

You could have defensive fighting styles and other mixed kinds with different benefits to fit YOUR style of play,

 

Fighting styles could also have really cool animation sets. (just like how you can set stances for your Tenno.)

 

So for example, you have the Galatine (a large sword) as your primary, you're cleaving through enemies. You come across alot of weaker faster enemies like chargers, you can then tap E (or hold for charge) do deal quick attacks with your secondary Fang (short daggers) just like normal melee. As soon as you stop, you pull your primary back out, the Galatine. Just like a gun.

Hmmm... Interesting idea!

 

Perhaps it could work in a similar manner like the system in Vindictus? (ie, Left click fast/normal attacks, Right click heavy/smash attack)

 

Then we could have real melee combos like LR, LLR, LLLR, while having a melee in the primary.

 

 

 

Hmmm... but then it'd complicate/overshadow regular melee.

 

 

 

Perhaps...

 

Perhaps while wielding a melee in primary, your other melee slot turns into a second secondary slot? Or DE could come up with a new weapon/item type that can only be used while wielding melee primary?

 

Eh, I'm too tired to brainstorm anymore.

i would suggest having still your primary in your equipment load out, but have it at a reduced damage value. 

 

Example: You have dual ethers equipped as your primary, despairs and a braton as your secondaries.  Dual ethers gain the bonuses mentioned above, while the weapons lose 10-20%damage thus encouraging you to choose how you want to carry your weapons.

there's nothing that says that this is strictly a shooter.  maybe some people like to melee.  maybe some people like to shoot.  either way there shouldn't be a "right way" to dispense of enemies.  what the op is suggesting is to make melee a way to dispose of enemies rather than lots of risk with no reward.

+1 and Thank you.

...What? No.

How many times to DE have to take melee gameplay down to the nonviable before people realise that they don't want to see people MELEE their way through the game? It's a SHOOTER.

If it's a pure shooter, why do we have so many choices of melee weapons and mods to put on them? Why not just give the warframes their own, boring low-damage attack (like Borderlands)?
