Re: Machete is OP

As much as I would love this, I think we all know it'll never happen, :/ at least not on the ps3, if they keep adding more and more cool stuff for the ps4 version that MIGHT be enough incentive for me to think about getting it, as it is I don't see any reason for me to buy a ps4 let alone an identical game with some cosmetic improvements

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...

so just a faster 2 swing so it can beat the modded 2x4 if you swing it fast properly but still fail if you don't time it right.

No Aim Assist.

Machete still sucks, I don't get why people still use it or claim OP.

It was a great combination weapon pre patch and probably better on its own than it is now, the 3 quick hits may give the illusion of being able to down faster but I'm almost certain the old machete downed faster just because it was a two hit down, if someone has footage that we could compare I'd love to see it

Yeah the Machete has been nerfed enough, it's supposed to give you the edge in close quaters so just stay away from mad-men with machetes and you'll be fine. I like it the way it is, not overpowered at all.

I never see anyone use it anymore actually, and it seems it's been removed from the comeback items you can get from toolboxes

^I believe they did, which sucks cuz i was hoping they'd replace it with Bat. Come on a Bat having 6 Hit, 2 each to down would make since for a loser to obtain if you ask me.

I've seen plenty of dudes using it, and I've got it from toolboxes 2 or 3 times.

Well I've never got it, I'm guessing you have to be losing so bad there's no hope left
