Close Combat With the BR (Multi-player)

If you're ever caught in a situation where you only have a BR in close combat, there are a few ways to proceed. One, you can throw a grenade down to either take down the enemy's shield or slow them down long enough to put some distance there.Two, you can try to get close enough to melee and then finish with a shot to the head. This is generally dangerous and not recommended unless well practiced. The third option would be to shoot twice, then melee. The BR takes exactly six bullets to get the enemy shield down low enough to kill with a melee. I would recommend option one whenever possible and method three if you must. I would only use the second method in cases of emergency.
