Its cool that it halts the 2x4 but the three strike is too quick. Shooting them doesn't even halt their animation, Guns > melee ya know. Combine it with that magnetic lunge and lag and its just too beastly.

It's underpowered now, it's been nerfed and not buffed.  The only way it can work is with brawler 1 at least, if that.

 

They should have kept the damage output and kept the rest of the changes like the three hits, faster, and negates the one hit stick.

 

I used to be able to kill and kill hard with machete, now it's weak.  I repeat, this was not a buff, it was a nerf.  I've used the machete since release and now it's useless for me.

 

Also what the **bleep** is up with the awareness, covert 3 should negate that piece of **bleep**, nobody sees nametags IRL **bleep**?!?!?!?!

I had a machete. Opponent had a nailboard. I swung at him, hit my first 2 slashes, went for the 3rd slash but got nailboarded by him.....

If I'm honest, I like the old machete better. 

If they could make it down in 2 hits and have a fast 2 swing (But not as fast as the current 3 swing), and make the mod add 2 hits without brawler and 3 with braweler, and decrease the stagger by a tad, I think it'll be balanced, especially for it's price. 

 

So basically somewhere between old-chete and new-chete. Just my opinion...

This is where Naughty Dog quickly implements the axe and has it identical to the pre-patch Machete. A little variety and choice for melee can't hurt.

Are you serious? It's purchasable melee weapon that only works when you are exteremly up close to your opponent.

How the heck is it OP?

Or maybe the pipe, it's fast and staggers opponents and takes 3 swings to down. When modded it's a 1 hit down. 

It's not OP, it's just stronk. Smiley Very Happy
