    Default Should all starting weapons have a stun after melee?

    Ok so the the gnasher has a slight stun after you melee so the two piece thank god is useless. The same cant be said with the other starting lancer excluded. You can melee with your retro take half the health then shoot, same with sawed off doesn't really happen to me all that often but I do hear complaining in games so I was wondering if this bothers others or just a minor inconvenience or none at all...?

    I didn't even know you could do this with a Sawed-Off.

    Well the Sawed-Off has only 4 shots and the Gnasher has 16 how is that fair.

    Sawed off users miss n try to melee u to death after it because they are gay and useless at this game! I usually get away, down them and change to my pistol, hold Y and then either punch their face in or rip their arm off!

    taking out the stun from the melee was one of the best changes they did!

    It has a decent stun to it, I wish it did more damage at the very least. You should be somewhat rewarded after managing to get that close to them to melee. The sawed off stun is ridiculous I swear I get sucked like a vacuum into their second hit

    I find the melee system in this game to be very annoying in general, a lot of the time I well get hit when the guy swings in the other direction... I don't know.

    What does sexual orientation have to do with the kind of gun you use?

    I mean I use the sawed off and last time I checked I'm straight.

    The best way to counter a sawn off person who melee's after they miss you is just to melee back. Chances are you've already shot them. So they should go down. If not then back up and repeat.

    Funny story: I actually end up having to melee people down with my Sawed-Off, after my point blank shot only partially hurts them.

    I only use the Sawed-Off because my Gnasher kept shooting marshmallows.

    So its like all the melee was in gears1? SWEEEEET!
    I hadn't even noticed after the (wrong) two piece fest that gears 2 was! If it's not on the other guns though , it really should be!

    Sadly I know that the devs LOOOOVE using the (wrong) two piece, so i doubt it'll ever completely go.
    In fact it make sense that if they like it the kept it for the SOS! lol!

    Ok I just wanna know is it not fair for the person who does the melee to be stunned after like the gnasher.. As it stands u meele with the gnasher there's a stun for the person who is doing the meele. Now shouldnt that appl also to retro meele and sawed off meele as a sort of a means for balance?

    Oh, there's also this issue of people short-range retro-charging, and then shooting you down.... or at least, attempting to. Last night I was in a game where that was literally all the enemy team did. They'd retro charge you from 5 feet away, and then shoot. So my team switched to Sawed-Off.

    In a word, NO. The Gnasher is OP as it is, nerfing anything else by adding a stun will further change this game into a one gun game. Which is boring for everyone.

    The way the Gnasher is now, no one should ever need to get within melee range anyway. You can gib people in one shot from pretttyyyyyyy far away...

    I think. His beef is the gun is to easy to use which is is purpose in the game and what makes ppl frustrated cuz they feel It takes away from the skill needed

    Fun facts!!:

    Your revese two-piece is the ACTUAL two-piece from gears1 (as it always should have been) the reverse one is the damned one from gears2 , now I know peeps will quickly disagree with that , but dems the facts!

    The G1 one at least required some skill (not much admittedly) you have to be able to shoot them and THEN close the space to melee (the snub was aswesome for this). Whereas the G2 one is more about people rolling into gib range and spazzing around which does not really require much skill (especially as the melee in G2 auto-aimed so your next shot was nearly guaranteed).

    So in short, shoot then melee old school and sorta OK, meele than shoot g2 and BAAAAAAAAD! IMHO anyways.

    Ok but shouldn't all weapons have a stun after meele excluding the snub.. Like your retro sawed off.. If the gnasher has a stun after meele then it's only fair for the other starting weapons to act in the same respect

    The melee is not useless, it's just much hard to use, the proper way to use it would be to melee your opponent after they are weak.

    Agreed.. Now there are new version of a two piece like move.. The two foot retro chrage then shoot.. The sawed off miss then meele.. I do think the gnasher meele stun should stay. It it should be implemented to the retro and sawed off to be fair

    i agree with the "retro charge then shoot" nerf. also, i think that if you dodge left or right then the retro charge should not damage u at all, or at least be reduced. i am sick of getting stabbed in my pinky toe and getting full red.

    u make it sound like someone is melee'ing you like a combo of punches after a SOS miss, lol. i understand what u mean and it happens to me also, but i don't think the SOS needs a stun modifier. if someone gets close enough to miss with the sawed off (clip you with a few pellets), mellee you, and then melee again without u being able to melee or shoot them back, then there is a problem. but i haven't experienced that.

    It only takes one hit with the sawed off after a miss assuming it did some damage.. IMO if one gun has a stun they all should
