The Best Melee Weapons?

  1. Why I ask this? Yeah is for fun instead using guns or rifle, we can just using melee weapons for killing zombies, its simple, no Ammo but the risk is higher, we must move close to the zombies but who cares we just cut/slice to pieces with the melee weapons, maybe you really need Melee Weapons when you playing REALISM mode ALL FOR FUN!!

    Ok! What do you think the best Melee weapons using in the left 4 dead 2! maybe chainsaw, Katana or Machete, of course I like them because I like kinds of swords for Killing Zombies HAAHAAHAA!!!!!

  1. I like the chainsaw, axe, and machete. Not sure if there is a difference, but man, I just love them. But I hate Rochelle saying :"Axe me a question, I dare you."

  3. It's all depending on your style. I personally like the bat and crowbar.

  4. Actually all the mele weapons are exactly identicall (of course, not apperance wise, but use wise), with the exeption of the chainsaw. People frequently think that weapons such as the katana are better than the cricket bat. This is an utter disillusion. The only difference betweeen them is the sound effect thatt they make, and their apearance.

  5. The only differences that I've seen is the hit areas and range. Some weapons, to me, have slightly longer range than the others - the guitar seems to hit a wider arc than the machete, for example. Not sure if it's just me or if it's right.

    Personally I'd have to say chainsaw>(guitar/katana/machete/axe)>everything else

  6. chainsaw isnt a melee weapon!!!!! a melee weapon has to have unlimited ammo and you HAVE to be able to swing it!!!! my opinion of melee weapons:

    Katana,axes,machete,frying pan(as my friend killed a witch with it alone),guitar,crowbar,Bat(if you count it as it its a pre order extra),cricket bat,night stick. =D

  7. my favorite is the katana. And I have to respond to moonprisim- "Axe me a question" is a futurama reference, they say axe instead of axe.

  8. Katana and Axe are the two strongest, I believe, with only a .2 second difference in swing time between the two. The bat is actually the MOST powerful, but...
    I don't know, it just doesn't feel that way to me. I contribute that feeling to it not having the image/idea of how much more effective a blade seems to the mind than a bat.

  9. Katana's pretty good, but my favorite's the cricket bat.

    Though I don't know why there are cricket bats in Georgia.

  10. The axe, frying pan, and guitar swing slowly but have a wide range. However, the pan has the same range as the guitar and swings faster and the axe has the same swing speed as the guitar but a wider range, so the guitar is inferior to both of those.

    The machete and the baton swing fast but have a small range. The baton has a faster swing speed and a smaller range than the machete, so it's even more of an extreme. It also swings diagonally sometimes.

    The bats are more in the middle, but closer to the axe/pan/guitar. They are the same other than the fact that the cricket bat swings diagonally sometimes.

    The katana is in the middle but closer to the machete/baton.

    The crowbar is terrible in about every possible way: it has the slowest swing speed and the shortest range. Don't use it.

    The chainsaw kills zombies incredibly quickly but has limited ammo and has a delay between taking it out and when you can actually use it.

    The crowbar and baton do a bit less friendly fire damage, and the chainsaw does a lot because of how fast it fires.

    Blunt weapons splatter less blood on your screen, making it easier to see, but bladed weapons can cut smoker tongues. Those are pretty minor differences though.
