Talking Why dont MAXs have a melee weapon?


You'd think the big fists of the VS and NC ones would be of some use at least, the TR could hit them with the gun barrels.

well probably lag and the amount of code is to blame here. but thats what they all say, so we'll just blame it on SOE's crappy customer support and other stuff

yeah I was thinking about that, a max with a melee weapon would be awesome, like a giant sword specific to they're empire such as a beam sword for VS.

No, because PSO uses beam type weapons that all look like lightsabres lol, but yea I think a beam type weapon for them would be sweet.

May be good on the Pounder's side. Killing infiltrators is a pain seeing as they run really close to you, forcing you to do some minor damage to yourself.

Screw the beam, just punch em! I think a hydraulicly-augmented 2" Titanium Punch would do some damage. And yes, they are hydraulically (or pneumatically powered). Listen while you walk

I think a suicide weapon would be cooler. Out of ammo? Got 30 armor left? Hit the self detonation command and wipe out the room.
