The knife is awful

#11DartitPosted 11/18/2012 7:52:20 AM
Every time I come up behind someone, I knife (so as such to save ammo, keep the magazine topped, stay off the radar, instant "no-fuss" kill), and end up heading straight pass them, ending up so my back is right in front of them.

I suppose I should give up and just shoot them with the way knifing is now, but old habits are habits.

And of course, the other team always manages to get knife lunges on me while I'm hip-spraying them.

Also doesn't help that you can apparrently lunge straight through people when up close and knifing.

It really shouldn't be this unreliable. Why not just copy BF3's perfect knife system. The more I play CoD, the more Iwant to return to BF.

They haven't fixed the knife IMO. I still get killed by players who knife through my bullets.

Then I'll miss three close range knife attacks from behind an enemy only to knifed by them as they spin round to confront me.

I kinda like it. Dancing around with the enemy trying to knife eachother is quite fun until someone else comes through and guns one of us down..

panic knifing seems to work for the opposition but i go up behind someone looking out a window a knife him an nothing happens then im dead and in the killcam he is some how behind me.

The knifing speed was changed in this game, the heavier the weapon the slower the knife speed.
Pistols actually have 105% knifing speed

Yeah. You're right. And with tac knife equipped it's like 110%, and SMGs have 105% as well. But I haven't measured it.

I have it worse than you guys.

I switched to tactical, saw a guy camping and got excited. Ran behind him and pressed R3 only to dolphin dive. Then he saw me and tried to knife me and I ran back and knifed back then he tried knifing me for a second time where I just shot him and laughed at myself.
