Line 1: Line 1:
'''Melee''' is a word borrowed from [[Wikipedia:French language|French]] (''mêlée'', [[Wikipedia:IPA chart for English|pronounced]] /mε'lε/) meaning hand-to-hand, close-quarters combat. Melee attacks are in contrast to ''ranged attacks'', performed at a distance, such as shooting [[bullet]]s, throwing [[fireball]]s or firing [[rocket]]s.
When pie is melee'd it makes apples.
Melee attacks are featured in [[Doom]], [[Heretic]], [[Hexen]] and [[Strife]].  A number of the Doom [[monsters]] can perform melee attacks in the form of clawing, biting or punching. [[Demon]]s and [[Spectre]]s are melee attackers only, while others have both melee and ranged attacks—these are the [[Imp]], [[Cacodemon]], [[Revenant]], [[Hell Knight]] and [[Baron of Hell]]. [[Player]]s can perform melee attacks using the [[fists]] or the [[chainsaw]]. [[Lost Soul]]s may be seen like melee atackers only, but infact the program treats them like living [[projectile]]s.
