I'm honestly surprised at how nerfed the knife is in this game.

It was nerfed to much. It's gotten to the point that the knife button doesnt exist to me.


This. Whenever I get into a CQC scuffle, and I have no option but to attempt a melee kill, I am immensely surprised if I come out as the victor.

knife isnt nerfed. its just tiered.

panic knife - worthless
ballistic knife - average
tactical knife - pretty decent lunge
naked knife - broken as ever

Good, this game should be more gun on gun and not just panic knifing(which I admit I did ALOT)

EDIT: People hate Battlefield 3 but the knife system there was near perfect(sneak attack instant kill, regular attack takes multiple hits)

It's pretty sad when circling a knifer and noscoping him with a sniper rifle has good odds of ending in your favor >.<

Worst thing about grammar police: They're cannibals. If one makes a single typo or error while 'critiquing' someone, they will be EVISCERATED by their fellows.

The ballistic knife actually has a longer lunge than the regular combat knife.

only problem i have is they appear to have given the combat shield the same hit detection as a non held knife, but requiring twice the damage to kill while making you slower...

I am also pleasantly surprised.

I was pretty surprised too. I completely gave up on knifing someone, even if they're not looking. One tiny little step away and the knife will miss.

I remember I was playing in Yemen, and I was in a building looking outside for the enemy UAV so I could shoot it down with my launcher. I hear not one, but two knifing noises coming from behind me. I didn't have my launcher out just yet, so I quickly turn around and I see an enemy with a gun who failed to knife me because I just barely stepped away. Keep in mind I had no idea he was behind me. So I shoot and kill him because he's still finishing the knifing animation. I actually felt kinda sorry for the guy. Next time, he'll know better than to knife someone instead of using a gun.

And if anyone is wondering, before BO2, I wasn't really much of a knife user. In this game, I swear a butter knife would be more deadly than the melee knife.
