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
not changing my sig until Shenmue 3 is officially announced.

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 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.
Wait I got it! Super Mario 3D Land will be in California and Super Mario 3D World will be in Florida. Zing! ~AloofGuyXXVII

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.
