Extreme Survivor. Most of the time it is easier to use weapons, but especially in Kitezh I find it takes too much ammo to do so. It's much more efficient to melee attack them.

Combine this with the 1 free heal per combat enounter, plus the few seconds where Lara cannot take damage after healing (probably halfway through the game)? And you've got yourselves a melee terminator.

I've been thinking of doing a purely stealth / melee playthrough soon. Just got back into the game 2 days ago and finished it 100%, currently messing around with Lara's Nightmare on the hardest difficulty. Lack of proper melee combat here makes it harder lol.
