Yeah, it does. If they do put in bayonets, they should make a farmer kit to put by the tractors. It would give you a straw hat, a corncob pipe, and a double barrel shotgun with a pitchfork tied onto it. OH YEAH!:D :D :D

OK my 2 cents

Bayonets are a joke. No self respecting Infantry when around with a bayonet on his rifle if he had any ammunition left at all. Has anyone else fired a rifle with a bayonet I have you can't hit shit. Might was well give me a pitchfork it has better range. Only Japan used them as a major combat tactic. From everything I've read it was a dismal failure that only worked the first time they did it to fresh troops that might get unnerved by it. After that they would just be gunned down without a chance. I don't know why you guys cry about realizm then want this.

Aye, bayonettes were much less used then in ww1 (where close combat was the common practice)

Attaching your bayonette added a huge weight to the end of your rifle, and made it very hard to aim. If your engaging in close combat, it was easier to just club the guy with the butt of your rifle, then shoot him while he's stunned (or just shoot him in the first place if you can manage). instead of gunking up the end of your rifle with goop, and possibly getting your weapon jammed in the guy's skeleton.
