Cant do a backstab to save my life.

Not even on the first undead knight that keeps his back turned. I walked up to him, put my shield down, targetted him, and hit R1.

Normal slash.

wtf.

Does weapon matter? Can you not backstab with the scimitar?

You generally can only backstab enemies that are around your height, the really tall knights can't be stabbed.

That sounds like BS.

Get closer. If you're behind him, shield down, and you hit R1, you should backstab. You have to be too far away.

The Knights can be backstabbed. It's how I manage to take it down.

Backstabbing feels a bit more picky to me than Demon's Souls, you have to stand in just the right spot.
