Yes I was solely talking about melee. Chances are that unless its a point match, the palma attack would never be used. No one will rush, and obviously u would probably never go into melee unless ur desperate. As for being able to out melee alot of rocks, probably low tier, mid tier ones if your pro. Destiny's swing is just a bit better than altron (A rank) and altron has a pretty bad first swing....
knockdown beam scroos ur switch shotting on a single opponent. Yes ur gonna throw boomerangs, beam, knockdown, wait-for-their-invince-frame-to-go-away. Its impossible to switch shot for more damage like freedom. Knockdowns can be ur enemy and ur friend.
But yes, Destiny is a solid suit for support fire but its attack is LOW compared to freedom. Significantly enough to see when u first play it. But it makes up for it in the spec and weapon set. Seed EX is pretty nice unless ur chased by a DSHC or fished by a nataku...1CKO same with freedom's njammer
