If you’ve played Left 4 Dead 1, you’ll probably know that there isn’t really any melee-ing options, except shoving the enemy with your gun so that they will be pushed back. Other than that, there’s really no way except a shotgun to get upclose and personal with any of the infected.
However, Left 4 Dead 2 is set to change that.
Of course, the classic guns will remain in the game, although Left 4 Dead 2 will be receiving some very special equipments along with the standard guns. Melee weapons, such as chainsaw, frying pan and fire axe are some of the first ones to be revealed, but the amount of melee weapons does not end there.
Recently announced, the new melee weapon is the cricket bat. You know, cricket sports? That kind of bat? Ouch.
With Fire Axe and Cricket Bat in the picture now — not mentioning how much the caps guy look like the Scout –, it seems that the melee weapons are taking up the form of the melee weapons in TF2. Who knows, you might just get a butterfly knife somewhere just because it instant kills anything from the back!
