Probably year based.  First one was just drifters for me.

To some degree. There is small chance for bogeymen or zombies from year 2 onwards.

What would the strategy be for a zombie party?  I don't remember seeing any blades in the club.  Is there an obscure melee weapon that I can bring into the mission?

@luigi pretty sure impossible heh. 


Also, trying the melee reactions in L4:  Seems like this will basically make melee fests (party/prison/vats) impossible:  Biggest problem is enemies will flip around so you can't really attack the back, although I guess you can kind of manage if you have two people gals in every melee encounter (not really plausible in somethng like gal party though).  Also RIP chainsawing zombies, and feels easier to just shotgun most of the early game academy nurses at this point.  Or at the very least just whip them instead for the reaction disrupt

It's a nice idea but I don't think it works in practice.  Maybe if striking the back doesn't cause a reaction?  Although that's pretty much all most people do anyways.  I mostly shotgun, grenade, throwing axe, and heavy weapons everyone anyways, so it doesn't affect me much outside these areas, though.

Agreed, balance is a bit delicate. Melee heavy missions might have too many enemies for this melee reaction version.
It's no problem that certain enemies really hurt from the front. Like you couldn't expect not to get hit when meleeing a blood hound with TUs. But the turning around bit for some is the question.

The new melee mode is more funny, but certainly needs more fine tuning, yes it might make impossible some missions  :'(
