Is it me, or are the melee weapons worse?

I swear the sword has no lunge except in flood, shouldn't you be able to lunge when the cross hairs are red? I feel like the melee weapons are pretty useless now compared to reach. Or maybe I just S##K wee-wees. Most people will agree on the wee-wees part and very much respect your opinion.

It's prolly due to the fact that getting shot at slows you down.

So wee-wees then?

Sword + Cloak + Sprint = Killing Frenzy.

Seriously I find I do much better with the sword in this game. Default sprint thank you very much.

Is there a non-camping strategy, because I really don't like camping

You can always make a tactical retreat, turn around, and meet them with the sword. You don't necessarily have to camp to use it, but you'll want to stick close to areas with cover to force them to you.

I hate Square-Activision's FFXIII and its slew of cash-in spin-offs & sequels

The hammer seems weaker. I have not used it extensively though.
I grow tired of the foolish foolery of foolish fools.

Swords range is shorter, because everyone has sprint.
My sarcastic tone doesn't translate over the Internet, which makes me sound like an ass. Usually I mean no offense.

If you prefer melee thrusters are your friend
