Yeah this is pretty stupid idea, but it's good. So let's say if I got a baseball bat. You can press a hotkey like F for it. And it'll basically shield some bullets that are shot against you but it will damage your weapon. And a couple bullets will basically just hit you even if your using shield.

And yeah you can also use the melee weapon to block fists or other weapons . (lmao idk if this even is added cuz i never use melee)

Y'know you can just press "D" while holding a melee weapon to block the incoming bullets, right? This automatically removes the point of a "melee weapon shield" idea, as you just press "D" to block and there's even a chance that you might get hit with some of the bullets. I don't really see the point of this idea.

I quite like this idea. Let me sacrifice my melee weapon in a stance where I can't defend myself from melee attacks and blocks all incoming bullets. Seems like a good move to help bridge the gap between automatic rifles and melee weapons.
