Eidos-Montréal‘s video game adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy is finally out in the wild, and we’re having a blast taking down throngs of interstellar bad guys with Star-Lord, Rocket, Raccoon, Groot, Drax and Gamora. While much of the focus is on the third-person shoot-’em-up action, you’ll occasionally have to get pretty up close and personal with your foes in the Canadian studio’s latest action-RPG. In this guide, we’ll explain how to melee in Guardians of the Galaxy. So, without further ado, let’s get into it, shall we?
How to Melee in Guardians of the Galaxy
We’ll cut right to the chase: To melee an enemy in Guardians of the Galaxy, all you’ll need to do is press the ‘Square’ button on a PlayStation controller or the ‘X’ button on an Xbox controller. This will initiate a melee strike on any adversaries that are all up in your grill and it’s an effective means of crowd control, especially if you’re in a bind and you’re waiting for your gun to recharge.
It’s also worth noting that the melee strike in Guardians of the Galaxy has quite a long wind-up time. In other words, make sure you’re giving yourself plenty of time before unleashing a melee, as it does leave you vulnerable to enemies’ attacks for a short window.
