Quick Question About Melee (Unarmed)
 
Hi, I had a question. When doing melee martial arts, are the moves randomized, or can you somehow select which ones you do through that skills window? I know each type of martial arts attack does something different as far as effects on enemy, which is why I ask. Sorry, I'm an unarmed noob. No idea.

I think it's mostly radomized as far as effects go, while yes you are in control of the button pressing it may or may not yield different combos which in turn may or may not affect the effects that are being displayed.

Old guide, but probably still valid.

I personally prefer Nanopulse Batleth. I have a few Tholian swords though.

My eng prefer either tsunkatse sword or nanopulse lirpa for close combat.

There are some basic combos that all unarmed combat uses. They do different attacks depending on the weapon (or lack there of).

1 and 2 are basic attacks. 3 is a pushback type attack.

Combos
  • 11
  • 22
  • 112 / 221
  • 122 / 211
  • 121 / 212


The combos with a 2nd sequence are alternate sequences for the given combo.

Thank you this is helpful, especially about the alternate sequences.

I have 1, my standard attack on auto-attack. As I understand the manual in the link, that is not the right thing for melee-combat.

I use melee a lot in the Defera ground invasion. I don't have to rmodulate each time. So I hit 1, auto attack, and from time to time hit 2 and 3. 3 is the knock back, very useful against the tactical and elite tactical drones.

Interesting matter, melee ground combat in the Defera invasion zone. I am still experimenting which class and wich kit performs the best.
