Today we are posting another video playthrough of an as-yet-unrevealed Killzone 3 multiplayer map: MP7 MAWLR Graveyard. In this video you will also get to see the Field Medic in action.
What? He got 25 points for an Assist Melee? How is that possible? Melee is a one hit kill. Maybe they changed that since the open beta? Considering there is a Day One patch coming
Iam playing in the open beta and i got assist melee once. i hit the target with melee(not brutal melee but with the weapon)and my team mate hit the target at the same time with bullet...what happened is that his hit registered as the main kill and me as the assist melee.
Question: What determines if you perform a regular melee or a brutal melee? It seems random to me. @wesley-dw- Yeah, that makes sense. Now that I think of it, range does play factor. Everytime I wasn't hugging the enemy I did a regular melee.
weapon melee = 1 hit kill too. @ LOGICWINS: Range. If you are pretty much hugging the enemy, you brutal-melee him. If you are quite far, but still in melee range, its a weapon-melee
I killed a guy one time where another player melee'd him at the same time, so I kicked him and the other guy stabbed him in the face. I got a melee assist for that. I couldn't be pissed because it was really cool looking. I was going to due neck slit but it had me kick the guy away instead cause the other teammate was meleeing at the same time. So he stole my kill, but wut-ev, it was cool. try it sometime, have two dudes melee a guy at the same time, I think it might be a legit thing.
@ logicwins i though holding in the analog stick when close enough will do a brutal melee, and clicking it fast will just make you swing. could be wrong but has worked for me so far.
Weapon melee takes 2 hits. brutal melee is 1 hit. thats how it is now on killzone 3. end of story
Amazing job GG! hahaha oh man that map looks awesome!
You guys are all wrong, both mele kill in 1 hit. Brutal mele is for when your enemy is at high health, so brutal mele engages taking longer to kill him. It gives his team a chance to save him. When the enemy is at low health you get the faster regular mele. This kills him instantly.
I've gotten almost 500 melee kills in the beta so far so I can assure you that what Wesley-dw said is correct. If your not right up on the enemy but still close enough to melee you will hit him with your gun. If you are right up on him you perform a brutal melee. Weapon melees are always one hit kills.
I'm sure it has to do with range, come real close and it's a brutal melee, and I think you'll have to walk, not run. But it's damn cool when a teammember rescues you from a brutal melee, I remember going YOU GODDAMN BASwell thank you right there brother:) Never scored an assist though, that's new for me.
some other guy was doing a brutal melee on the enemy first n he melee him too that's why he only got the assist
if you smack a guy while he's getting shot or melee'd i've gotten it before.
This game just looks so damn awesome. I am completely blown away by this game. This mp just looks fun as hell.
yup apart from some issues they need to address it like the low health, the game is freaking awesome and will set a par for multi player fps games.
What do you mean by "low health", do you mean you want it to take more bullets to kill? I personally think they have a good balance, I don't like FPS's where it takes half a clip to put someone down, but at the same time when you are shooting at some dude who looks like a Helghan then you expect a few bullets to drop them. I hope they don't change it to give people more health as that would change the whole feel of the combat and make it more fake feeling.
"hope they don't change it to give people more health as that would change the whole feel of the combat and make it more fake feeling" They need to increase the health buy by a small amount because in k3 the aim is lot easier than kz2, sometimes i can kill 3-4 players with just 1 clip because the aim is easy and they die fast. if they raise the health alot then yh it will change the game alot and will make melee attacks op.
From my playtime with the Open Beta, the 3shot assault rifle that medics get is kinda underpowered. Where as the LMG is pretty powerful.
yeah but after the first 3 shots that LMG is hella inaccurate. its quite annoying at times.
its called burst fire and medic is a support class along with engy and marks and infil they have guns to be on the front lines but they are support TACs are more front lines classes
I have to say I am Lovin' the multiplayer beta at the moment, it just feels so much better that Killzone 2 did.
this game is amazing I traded my xbox360 for a ps3 just for this game....
Cool story bro
SO I WAS KILLING THIS BABY, RIGHT....
And it was like, crying and stuff...
And the $#@$ing hacksaw-saw kept getting stuck in the bones...
..so i yanked it out and boiled the baby to make him a little more tender and the hacksaw went through like butter ;)
The assault rifle looks cooler without the dot sight
that crusher is evil!
game is ammmmmaaaaaazing.
After playing some more of the beta I think they need to increase the spread of the Shotgun shot, it just seems way too effective mid range. Also, take the Shotgun away from the Infiltrator class, I feel like this is TF2 where I have to "Spy Check" every other second by shooting all my teammates who have shotguns.
infiltrator is good for mid to far range becuase it looks like thier in your team. you dont need to "spy check" ur team, all you need to do is look or aim at them and if its username turned red its the enemy. Its really effective mid range, not so much in close.
When you shoot a medic remember to shoot them on the ground becuz they can get back up.
shhhhh dude! thats part of my strategy, they never know hahaha
