# 1 Hand-2-Hand BO?
01-31-2010, 01:53 PM
So, I tried just unequipping my BO's weapon to see if he'd run into combat and punch/leg sweep... nope, he just crouches and watches the battles.

Is there a way to make a hand-to-hand ensign BO?

Hand to hand, who knows. But have you tried giving them a Bat'leth?

Yeah, been trying to find the answer to that too. All I know is that at least if you want to do that, there are kits for that. As for BO's... hmm...

I ran into this too. I found the most effective way to get the BO to take part in the battle was to tell them to attack something directly. This would often prompt him to run up and start to smack things.

The other way is to put yourself closer to the enemy. By default they follow you and if you get into close proximity it will often trigger him to attack.

I think I got it going... re-mapped the "all crew attack my target" to an extra mouse button and he runs right in there now!

This thread gave me the image of 3 Vulcan tactical officers jumping on a small Ferengi and pummeling him as he shoots his pistol into the air.

It would be cool to have Melee BO's. I call Sulu with his sword

Are they droppable items? I'd love to give my characters melee weapons. I don't really like having two different ranged weapons for my main character.

I get my melee tactical officer to beat up on guys by choosing a target and then clicking for my melee officer to do a Leg Sweep. He generally continues beating on them, but even if he runs back he knows to start whaling on anybody who comes near.

Unfortunately, I don't like how my melee officer attacks - it's too slow. If I start punching a bad guy myself I can toss a continuous stream of punches provided that I'm not stunned or held or anything like that. But my melee officer will throw a punch, crouch, wait, throw another punch, crouch, wait, throw another punch - etc. Cryptic really needs to improve this.

I'm hoping to myself that if I hand my melee officer a Bat'Leth, which can be bought at DS9 and be used at the rank of Commander, he'll strike more swiftly.
