Positional Combat - Orientation in combat


Combat in Epitaph uses a loose system of positions, to ensure that a player with a shotgun can at least get a few shots off before the enraged undead hordes overwhelm them.

Melee range

There are two possible melee ranges. Most of the time, people are in the scrum. At this range, they can punch, kick and swing weapons at each other. Getting closer still puts them in grappling range. At this range, ranged combat is impossible and melee combat is disadvantaged.


People on the sidelines are not actively involved in melee combat. However, they can still use ranged weapons.
