Maybe I am misremembering. But, I think the first time you are exposed to enemies (ones that are red) is in the steel yard. On entering the steel yard, an assault rifle is provided next to a dead body.

Right, but I can see why one would think you have to have melee. Wernher cautions you so strongly that it's easy to be confused as to whether or not you should even take a gun out once you enter the Pitt. The first time I did it I just went in guns blazing.
