Are melee weapons viable in season 4?

Oh I don't know. My most recent Kling Tac character has bat'leths on all of his BOffs, and they mow things down pretty quickly.
The shield bleed-through being nerfed to 50% is lame. I'm guessing without it players would be slaughtering everything with melee weapons. NPCs did take a big hit to their health pools, and having melee weapons go through shields at 100% damage might have been too much. Still, 50% damage through shields is rough.
