Are the melee weps op?
Or is the hardest difficulty just too easy? I was just playing it for the lulz and stormed through the first 3 missions with just my axe.

pretty sure the Axe has a high base damage, so killing special infected with it is a breeze. The Tank only needs a low number of swings with it

What about the bat then? I found that fairly easy as well.

Doesn't matter which melee wep, they're really all similar. And yeah they really are op, i think their should be a bit less on some levels

Pretty sure all weapons deal the same damage, what varies however is the speed you swing it and it's range. http://left4dead.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons
ITS 2015, CLEAR YOUR BLOCKLIST! Sep 28, 2013 @ 5:01pm 
THESE DOESNT APPLY TO THE TANK
TANK WILL GET 250 DAMAGE FOR EVERY HITS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On any other Special Infected...................
every melee weapons have a 250 damage for body hit
every melee has 75% damage if you hit legs
every melee will one hit if you hit the head

Axe, Crowbar, Katana AND Machete, can cut the smokers tongue before they hit you ( Must have good timing )

A hit of any melee on Commons will kill the first row and knock back any close, untouched Common

So basically, Yes, Melees are over powered, especially if you compare to pistols, which are completely useless, because when you get incapped you still get one to defend yourself....
And magnum, is pretty good! Clears everything when youre down.

This is not correct. Not all the melee weapons deal the same damage. Bladed weapons like the Axe, Katana and Machete deal a bit more damage per hit than other melee's like the Tonfa.

On-topic:
Yes, they are OP. And all the T2 fire weapons can also be considered as OP by some people, but that's a whole new matter.

Really? They all seem to do 250ish.

They all do the same damage, but some weapons, like the axe, have a REALLY long arc in which it can hit something, while the tonfa has almost no arc. The tradeoff is swing speed, tonfa can swing insanely fast while the axe takes forever.

Wait, did you do expert or expert realism?

I don't agree, pistols are great. Even better if you know how to aim. Besides, Melee's damage vary from time to another, but the usual damage on a tank for example is 300, not 250. Hitting Other parts such as arms or legs will barely damage(Not even 75%). The best i can remember from jumping randomly at somebody hitting me would be 7 HP. He chipped me with even less for about 5 swings. Depending on the density of hitboxes, you'll know back some commons. However some weapons do not make exceptions and kills them automatically(Ex: Baseball bat, Frying Pan).
