The Outer Worlds – Melee Combat
Melee combat in The Outer Worlds, while certainly no Mordhau, is a little more intricate and in-depth than you might expect from a game like this. Not only are there combos that differ for one-handed and two-handed melee weapons, and the ability to block to reduce incoming damage, but with a high enough value in the relevant Melee skill, you’ll be able to do a Perfect Block – which means timing your block just as the attack hits you – in order to briefly stun your opponent. This is a very useful (and in the higher difficulties, essential) skill to learn if you are focusing on melee combat.
