# 1 Melee Tac BO
02-22-2010, 09:10 AM
Wondering if anyone uses a melee focused Tactical Bridge Officer for Away Missions. I thought it might be a good way to make better use of my secondary Tac Officer for away missions (current run 2 Tac, 1 Eng, 1 Sci and me as Sci).

Has anyone tried this? If so, what is the best way to boost their damage? Are there melee weapons available or should I just use a Klingon/Vulcan/Alien for the DMG Buff?

Theyre pretty worthless. They don't use any of the melee combos. In fact they spend half the time crouching and only attack once every couple seconds.

Yup...found this out when I gave my Klingon BO a bat'leth. The AI needs a pretty good tweak.

Plus, if you give them a melee weapon and then give them a ranged weapon, they won't use the ranged weapon for the rest of the mission.

I started a thread some time ago and I've gotten some feed back.

The title of the thread is: "BOff A.I. = Aint Intelligent?" or "The Perils of Ground Combat"
