-Dash range now match melee attack ranges

After checking out the update, this should probably be rephrased to “melee attack range now matches dash range”
Do sensors still work on melee weapon range? It’s hard to tell. Also, this is a pretty big melee nerf, I think a reduction of mass of melee weapons would be a good counterpart to this change, especially with the large difference in mass between the lower and upper rank weapons.

Has anyone managed to get ahold of one of the Ultra Heavy weapons yet. Thought I finally had one earlier today but blew off one of the enemy’s arms and lost it.
