When to melee and when to shoot?

    When to melee and when to shoot?

    I've always wondered this whenever I play as the humans, when is it appropriate to melee? Obviously if you are out of ammo or have to reload while getting your face clawed off you have no choice but to melee, but are there any other instances when using melee is better? Also how much dps does melee do exactly?

    I think it does 100 damage. The situations you said are good, but maybe sometimes when they are too up close and all your abilities are recharging or it´s just chaos and you can´t see clearly.

    Good points. Expanding on the last point (visibility), I like melee against phased Deceivers because if I know which direction they're circling I can just spin and melee. The other day I got lucky enough to hit 5-6 of these in a row, melee killing a phased deceiver from near half HP.

    Ah yes, forgot to add the one about the Deceiver, good memory!
