Looks like it's a melee class. Were-skag?

From what I saw, it looked like nothing but the words "A New Vault Hunter". We can all still make random guess that could be true or false, but as far as I'm aware, so far, doesn't look interesting. Just them saying, "Hey, we're finally doing some work". Just my opinion, Flame on.

If this thing does turn out to be melee oriented, I wonder how it will stack up to Zer0?

I don't quite understand the appeal of melee based characters in a game so heavily focused on guns. Do you still focus on guns with a melee build or do they simply compliment your melee fighting?

Me neither. Melee isn't fun at all in thsi game to me. Only time I even use it is to get Badass Ranks. I consider any skill that caters towards it a complete waste of my points. It makes that line force me to pick the other skill even if it sucks because melee is such trash.

To be fair though, there is no such thing as a melee focused character if you don't want one. Every melee skills focus can be disregarded for more guns focus. You don't need to use melee on Zer0 at all and he still has sniper badassery.

In a game that's so heavily based on guns, I find Melee a Challenge, and that's why I find the idea of a Melee Based Zero fun. If they were to incorp another Melee Class, that might ruin it a bit, but it might provide a challenge to some of the people that are looking for variety.
