Re: Melee only interrogation - Machete "owns" flamethrower/shotty

Oh they would scream alright!
If you think about it though, the shiv does the same thing.

A blood curling scream from across the map followed by the sound of pulling it out( like machette exe's) would make me use it on every load out.

Right now I dont see the machette as even worth using to be honest.

Thing with your suggestion is people are going to combine it with smoke bomb. Also since machete can be binded for 5 hits it can be OP. All players will do is use crafter, you get blades/binding in the first 3 supply boxes and you can your 5 hit machete within the first 2 mins of gameplay.

 

Yea i got less lethal because 2x4 is stronger plus then they also got shotguns and flamethrower xD!

 

and I probaly should have bought armour but i think it was because i didnt want to run out of parts to buy machete since i didnt have binding to bind my current one.

doesn't seem that OP since you can have up to 6 shiv kills at a time already, and chances are you are gonna be using the machete for melee as well, so the 5 hits don't seem like much when you take into account that all 5 hits won't likely be used for just stealth takedowns anyway.

AND you have to have to have Brawler 2 on AND binding and blades.

machete is, as noted above, solely useful in Survivors, where there are almost no 2x4s.

 

I tried it again this morning.  Even by the time I'd bought and made one, people were running 2x4 mods.

 

Worthless.

Or when some one throws smoke you jump over some thing?

Honestly the machete is pretty poo.
4 load out points.
Loses to modded 2x4
Often ties with unmodded 2x4.

Dunno. Rarely see it used as a load out weapon.
I wouldnt use it myself in its current state.

its not worthless.

machete with a gunshot can reliably beat upgraded plank. its pretty satisfying to hack the 1hko plank guy and down him mid animation.

tbh i dont even upgrade the plank anymore when i get it cos it works the same if you can deal enough dmg.

not as easy as other options but way more rewarding imo.

The machete needs to be on fire when you use it.

One hit burn.

that machete + gunshot thing isn't notable since the 2x4 can do it as well. Hell you can even sometimes pull it off with your fists
