Default Marine's rifle now with blade?

I have searched a lot but i have not found a 3d that it spoke about this.
So i am sorry if it has been already spoken. Sorry.

I have noticed in the screenshots something that shone in the final part od the Marine's rifle.
I watched carefully and i noticed that was a small blade! Like the ancient bayonet(?)!








Maybe is only an aesthetic matter, but is strange... i believe tha maybe the Marine can do a kind of melee damage now. Maybe even Hydralisk can in SC2.

What do you think about this?

It's really old news... Look for "terran bayonet" and you'll find many threads on this.

Anyway: I kinda like them from the functional point of view, but I think it doesn't fit in a high-tech enviroment as terrans are supposed to be.

Oh damn! Sorry about this...

Anyways i think that even with the tech. progress of the Terran in SC could be the space for the things that seem ancient technologies and customs like blade or punches ecc..

sorry, it's old news, but we're glad you've noticed it too.

Marine's on SC2 kinda reminds me of WC3 Human Footman though...

The shield and the bayonet make sense. Rines are going against Lings and Lots which both use blades.

Right... except when the first ling gets stabbed and stuck on his bayonet its other 50 friends can tear him to pieces... and the bayonet would just bounce off the zealots shield and then the zealot would slice his ass in half... not really logical with the zergs numbers and protoss' strength.

Wow, you do realize that the Bayonet would be the LAST ditch effort? In case your gun runs out of ammo or the zerg swarm you too fast? If they take bats out, bayonets would be a fair and logical replacement.

Try 12 rines vs 24 lings. You'll kill a decent amount before they swarm you.

yes but they ultimately swarm you and thats what matters, the marines don't run out of ammo during gameplay so theres no reason for the bayonets.

I meant logically, and why are people so opposed to the bayonet anyways? Like fire is going to break through an energy shield.

Because it looks damn ugly on the model... It would be better if it was retracted inside the rifle until something got close then they could extend it... Hell let them fire it out at something even... that would be more useful than getting it stuck in a zergling or something.

I dont think a blade is going to make a bit of diference against the protective hide of a zergling or the shields of a zealot.
