Melee does about 50% as much damage in overwatch than it does in combat.

Melee weapons typically have a higher chance of being blocked, and the attacker’s guard will be lowered for a brief period after blocking until they recover from the move. This means that melee attacks are less likely to connect compared to ranged attacks, making them weaker overall. In contrast, Ranged weapons can hit multiple targets without getting close enough for an opponent to block or parry them successfully – this makes ranged weapon far more effective when fighting from a distance where both parties have time to react and prepare their defenses before engaging in physical combat.
