But unrealistic. I have never read about an american soldier jumping into a sand bag implacement and knifing 4 German soldiers on D-Day.
I agree. Knifing is overpowered (but SHOVEL-WEAPON-OF-KINGS and SAMURAI-SWORD-WEAPON-OF-KINGS most certainly are not.) However, in 0.67a and previous versions, it really was sort of lamed and a question of luck.
I'd agree that nobody in their right mind in combat would go knife-happy. However, removing it seems excessive. It's a good weapon for a lot of maps and classes, including for commando sneaky-poo actions. I'd say keep it for some classes, maybe lower its range a bit, and replace with rifle-butt (a la Duke Nukem) and bayonet (a la Road to Rome) action for EXTRA-WEAPON-OF-KINGS bonus points.
Maybe the answer is here to pull out your knife first and fuck them up in return. Seems to solve my problems. Sounds like some of you have been embarrassed one to many times. Toughen the hell up and return the favor. Like you said its not hard so why dont you think ahead?
I like the new Knives and closecombat weapons. They´re good at what they´re supposed to be good at....close quarter combat.
i agree too!, i hate the new knife ranges, way overpowered imo. but they shouldnt go back to where they were, they were underpowered before. and the crawl speed is unrealistically slow (snails pace slow!!!), and walking is to fast.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

i think my imput on the subject would be more valuable than most. being probably the only one here who has actually stabbed someone (no, he didnt die). when stabbed you go down quick. from what i understand, when the adrenaline starts flowing, you might not even notice if you have been shot for up to an hour. however, you can see the knife blade going into you. there is no doubt in your mind that you have just been stabbed.
Dee-JaýI like the new Knives and closecombat weapons. They´re good at what they´re supposed to be good at....close quarter combat.
Except the range is too far.
I understand why the devs made the knives the way they did, but the problem is that the radius of damage is too long.
Tone it down a bit, and it will be fine.
The knife animation reminds me of someone waving a wand. Ateleast could they a mkae a thrusting animation, sort of like the throwing knifes in SWOWW2?
I compleatly agree!!
Knifing used to take skill before .7 now anyone who whips it out can get an easy kill, even aginst a ppsh i have owned people by running back and forth and running around them and kill them with knife easily.
And i remember those knife fights between 2 people where people would gather around and not shoot the enemy to see the outcome and who was the better knifer. Those were great times, but are no more.
And on pavlovs hose the knife or better yet the shovel is the most effective weapon in the house, i use it exclusively inside and it is not uncommon to get over 20 kills with a knife alone on this map.
Oh shut the hell up, Its fun. Its mainly the Japs who do the knifeing, due to the fact their rifles suck. Look, BE ALERT, if you're constantly getting knifed, you aren't looking out for whos comeing near you.
