i was thinking...when i saw the picture of the grenades on the chain, and how they were used down at the bottom, i wondered if a grenade could possibly be used as a melee. i hate it when youre about to throw a grenade into a doorway and someone comes out and gets a quick melee shot on you. instead of quickly throwing the grenade and then ripping out your gun and trying to counter them, maybe with Gears you can do a melee with the grenade.

you can start swinging it, but instead of throwing it, swing it into someones face like a mace (that rymes...) it might cause you some damage but it would get them out of the way.

tell me what you think

well grenades are explosive (duh.......) and u dont want to be putting any kind of pressure on explosive things, lets say u smack a guy in the face with a nade u would probably end up activating it and blowing the crap out of yourself, anyways i highly doubt u can do thiis, it would be kind of cool but not probable......

its supposed to explode on their face. how else would it kill them? lol...i'm just saying it would be nice and maybe you could take some damage from the blow as well

well grenades in GoW are really rare and some what powerful, if u have seen teh e3 demo marcus kills 2 locusts with 1 nade, and if ur that close to be able to melee an enemy with and nade and it explodes u both would most likely die, and it would look werid since whenever u pull the nades out the arc shows up so if u hit someone with the nade it would look right, btw when u said hit them with the grenade i thought u actually ment swing the nade at there face using the pointed mace like cover i didnt know u intentionally wanted it to explode, w/e i highly doubt this will happen b/c it would really fit well into the gameplay and the controls,

btw DOES ANYONE KNOW IF U CAN THROW NADES FROM THE "AIM MODE", WELL IT DOESNT REALLY MATTER ANYWAYS B/C U HAVE THE ARC FOR ACCURACY AND U DONT NEED TO BE IN AIM MODE, O WELL, JUST WONDERING

dont worry if u really want to hit someone in the face u might get the chance, EPIC has not released all the weapons of GoW so maybe there is some kind of cool melee weapon, b/c if the COG get the Chainsaw the Locusts have to have something, maybe a super cool Mace?

something like this would be cool

but they would have to make it a part of a gun, who knows, EPIC will think of something cool for your face smacking needs lol

yaaaaa sure **looks around and eyes the exits** jk, i was saying that this would be a cool Locust weapon if it could combine with a gun, b/c they need a "chainsaw type weapon" too! maybe a hammer burst with a hammer/mace at the end of if, and then u can "skull crack" ur enemies!

Man if they had a attachment like that. I would be scared to go and melee attack them with my chainsaw in fear of getting "skull craked".

Also add a timer to the gernade so you dont get blown to pieces also. That would be an amazing site to see in GoW.

Well I heard a rumour that each weapon will have its own melee attack, and that the grenades attack is to shove a bolo down someones throat and enjoy the mess :D

This was purely a rumour and I have no way of backing it up with solid evidence, but it sounds damn cool :p

You could smack someone in the face with a smoke or flash grenade. That would look so cool.
Also if you throw a grenade and it hits someone directly it should be a one hit kill.

i think i was the one who suggested that on the "how would you finish off and enemy" thread haha.
me and my grenades

i just hope theyre is something, ANYTHING you can do to stop getting getting charged while throwing a grenade. you said you could throw it normal but if this game is as real as it sounds (and it sounds AWESOME) then it will still take a little while to throw, get gun out, and then defend yourself

thats stupid cuz a chainsaw is much cooler and does more damage then a stupid mace on it

i dont want the mace on the gun! my whole point is that i dont want to get my gun all the way out again before i have to defend myself and end up wasting a grenade. i want to swing the grenade
see the person coming
and instead of quickly chucking my grenade into space then getting out my gun
i want to just hit them with it

ya, seriously who would exchange a gun wit a chainsaw, for a gun with a mace, it takes like no energy to chainsaw sumone but then u have a mace that u ahve to struggle to beat sumone's head in, not to mention taht it will look RETARDED! haha

If you grab hold of the butt of your gun and started swinging it around, and then smacked someone in the face, that would be the coolest kill ever.
Imagine the trash talk "OHHHHh you got Mace slapped BIATCH!"

come down i was just throwing ideas out, i was just saying that the locust need some kind of weapon similar to the lancer, right? and since we were talking about maces i just gave and idea, and trust me when a locust who are strong as hell smack u with a spiked mace in the face, lol, u will pretty much die and ur skull would explode, which would make a cool animation, would it not?

Grenades are 1 hit kills

ya i heard something like that also, that would be really sweet, but most of the melees will be the traditional melee gun hit but some will be special like the lancer's melee chainsaw, and hopfully the grenades do this! btw grenades are very rare and very strong, most likely they are one hit kills if they land anywere near u, especially if ur not in cover, remember the e3 demo, cliffy kills 2 locusts with one nade

The Locust doesn't have anything special on their guns unless it is MP. If they had, SP would be too hard since you basicly get instagibbed by it. It would also be very difficult to actually chainsaw your opponent since your opponent have a melee attack that will kill you instantly too.

I don't know this by announced facts, just by common sence.

Like... in MP there's 2 guys on your team and 1 on theirs.

Unless the grenade has a clip on it, just dont take off the clip then melee bash them in the face

well wether it has a clip or not smacking a grenade on someone will most likely activate it and blow everyone close to bits, you never what to be putting any kind of pressure on explosives, but who knows..............
