Rage 2 is Bethesda’s newest open world first-person post-apocalyptic shooter that takes place in a colorful yet savage wasteland. Developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, Rage 2 is just as wild and insane as their previous titles, Doom and Just Cause. You’ll be fighting against tons of enemies in Rage 2 so if you’re trying to figure out how to melee attack, then here’s everything you need to know.
How to Melee in Rage 2
To hit the enemies in Rage 2 with a melee attack, all you have to do is press the R3 button and you’ll bash them over the head. If you end up in close combat situations, melee attacking is a sure-fire method of keeping enemies at bay.
There is also a Nanotrite ability called Shatter that you can unlock and upgrade that allows you to lunge forward at your target to unleash a strong kinetic shatter that sends enemies flying while breaking their armor. To use Shatter, all you have to do is hold down the L1/LB button and then immediately press the Square/X button to unleash hell.
Since Shatter is a Nanotrite ability, you’ll be able to upgrade the ability as you progress, increasing damage and knockback dealt to the target.
