Melee weapons vs using my gun to butt enemies? Dragging Bodies?

[ Edited ]

can't we just use our shotgun as a melee weapon istead of items like pipes that have durabiity?

 

This was shown in e3 conference where the shotgun was used to bash enemies heads in, but since then I was wondering why should we use planks and pipes that have durability when we have metal shotguns to bash enemies to pulp?

 

Also, Can we drag enemies from sight once they are taken down??? so we don''t get spotted? This was never clear if it wwas going to be done

 

oh, and will the choke hold move be non lethal tp humans?

I guess there's always the chance of ruining the stock with a gun butt multiple times. Don't wanna ruin your only source of fire power when you could just use a pipe. Smiley Indifferent

 

I have no idea if you can drag enemy's but I'm gonna say no. We would have seen/heard something by now. Can't you sorta drag them when you have them in a neck grab? Example: Grabs hunter and walks behind near by corner.

if we can't it would be pretty stupid in a heavy stealth game not to drag bodies

 

The enemies would be like "**bleep**" when they see the bodies on the ground and start searching everywhere making the mission harder

You can use guns as melee weapons. As you can see here on the livestream video at mark 39:30. I can't confirm dragging bodies though, but there is some part of me that says they would implement it.

First he smashed him with a wooden plank, and then grabbed him, and he finished him off by knocking him down with his magnum pistol.

Gun butts happen when you attack an armed enemy with your fists to steal his gun. Or when you grab a stunned enemy and use him as a human shield. To finish him off, there is a gun butt animation. But strickly speaking the gun butts are only 'skins' of unarmed melee attacks. That's my guess.
