Bayonets for extended range melee
« on: January 17, 2015, 04:59:48 am »
The UFOpedia says the combat knife has a bayonet ring. This should allow it to be affixed to the muzzle of things like assault and sniper rifles, machine gun, to give extra reach for melee fighting. With the momentum of a heavy weapon behind the thrust, it should also do extra damage.

Great idea. Same with the Monomolecular knife when it becomes available. Though I suppose there also should be some accuracy/TU nerfing to compensate for the added usability.
