I know this topic has been discussed in some aspects, but that was when the BF2 engine was brandnew, and now maybe more answers can be given...

How will melee work? I'm sure we will have knifes and shovels, but will they be cheating like in 0.7? (they act as like 10 knifes with one click, go to a wall, knife it...) Also what about making it possible to throw the knife?

Furthermore what about the bayonets? Should they be chosen as a seperate weapon as in bf1918 (for 1942), or should there be a third weapon operation button that allows to stab, kick with all weapons? (as like in CoD, RO,...)

The knives are a bit.. weird.. in 0.7. And what comes to throwing knives, it was already done in bf1942 Secret Weapons, so correct me if I'm wrong, but it should be doable in bf 2 aswell.

Personally I'd prefer having a melee option for the weapons and the ''third weapon operation button'' would get my vote if it is possible to do that in bf 2?!

I think knives and shovels need to be removed all together, what is realistic about german soldiers running around slicing enemy soldiers up with a friggen shovel? Absolutely nothing, and i very much doubt allied soldiers had the habit of taken the knife to the enemy. They should either be attached to the end of their rifle, or not used at all.

5 knifes infact.;) For throwing knifes play Secret Weapons of World War II. For the rest check out FH info thread with McGibs's posts links.

I think the knives are perfect as they are. Not for online playing though, only for killing stooopid bots because I suck at using melee-weapons...:)

I have to agree with you here. The amount of times i see people switching to knifes/whatever is simply absurd. And i can assure you in most cases the reason they do so is not because they have no other choice because in most situations they can easily use their rifle. That is not to say hand to hand combat didnt exist in WW2. Infact it did happen though, but how often it happened, well i cant say much about that. Although i do know most army's spend but minimal time training their soldiers in hand to hand combat, with exception of commando's and such but thats a entirely different story. Also a few nice links for those whom are interested in hand to hand combat. http://www.jimmy-fatwing.co.uk/ http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?t=83214&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=unarmed&start=15

The german army spent alot of time with melee practice, some elite units even learned Kung fu and such...

I think Waffen SS units were also hardtrained on close combat.

Really? Do you have anything that can confirm your arguement? Because so far i havent read much that actually confirms what you are saying. :)

I do know however that German pioneers did receive a alot of training in melee. But then again thats not really strange.
