jowell24 Posted January 16, 2013 Share Posted January 16, 2013 Tried out the axe and I'm not liking it too much. Considering the damage it does to units and its swing speed I don't think it's a fair trade-off. Playing either coop or singleplayer it still underperforms against all factions (why have the slow swinging axe when you can have a sword that one hits most infected) Plus after charging up a swing your character slows down making it easier to miss since the enemy can move out of the way quite easily. You'll also find that you'll miss fair bit with your normal swings, much less radius than a sword. The fire rate stat of 1.0 doesn't seem to match up with the actual in-game speed Basically for me I'm finding my axe much weaker than my Skana Prime. I tried doing a couple of lower level missions to accomodate for the low level but I still felt at a disadvantage in CQB since other players could take my kills very easily when going in for the melee. I feel the stats should be buffed somehow - What are people's experience of the either or both weapons? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
