i think it'll be bajonets because in the movies on internet of the game you see bajonet work

 #3 - Posted by: Machinegunner (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 09:59

Heheh, I chose bayonets. I like to stab people with that. Maybe Cod 5 should put a lot of gore and blood in there.

 #4 - Posted by: thecheeseman (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 12:11

All of them. It'd be fun if EVERYONE could decide what form of Melee attack to use in the game. Some bashing, others knifing, etc.

 #5 - Posted by: Nitronumber9 (Staff) on 08-24-2008 at 13:31

Roundhouse kick. Hey if it worked for Chuck Norris and F.E.A.R surely it would work in WW2?

 #6 - Posted by: Qmonkey (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 13:56

I think it would be cool if you for example ran around with an M1 Garand with fixed bayonet you would have three buttons so you could choose if you wanted to bash, knife or stab with the bayonet. Like some movie thing: You run into an enemy trench, smash an enemys head with the butt of your gun, stab the next with the bayonet, and knife another guy, then fire your weapon.

Baynot best its better stab and pull out but i hope in cod5 mutiplayer its a attachment

 #8 - Posted by: kapulA_85 (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 15:00

I'd like a combination of bayonet and butt stock for the weapons that couldn't mount one.

 #9 - Posted by: RuhigSein (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 15:01

Others - All out fighting. You could use any weapon to your advantage. Fist, Kicks, Gun bashing, knifing, household objects, throwing objects...etc... Anything at will to defeat the enemy.

 #10 - Posted by: TheShady (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 15:25

Other: Force Blow

 #11 - Posted by: infrequent (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 15:25

It should be as in SOF2. Bajonets on some weapons, bashing with others (like shotgun) and being able to throw knife as well as stabbing with it. Why else would SOF2 have remained fun for more than 6 years ;-)

 #12 - Posted by: stev (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 20:41

Knife should be a quick weapon option, you can't shoot with a knife in you're hand. Gun butt would be obvious. Bayonnet if ww1 or 2. A kick , to cause a 1 second delay to victim where he can be killed or after 1 second attack. A well placed nutbash can even be 2 seconds. A kick in the back can cause a sprawl or over the rail fall effect. A second kick would also be a sprawl or weapon drop. A third kick or boot stomp would mean death.

 #13 - Posted by: Zilk (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 20:59

It should have them all. Knife for SMGs and Snipers Bayonet for rifles. Bash for all. Players should be able to pick what melee to use in a custom class. (if they have those)

 #14 - Posted by: Stampler (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 03:36

Rock, paper and scissors would be the best melee mode for cod 5

 #15 - Posted by: axis_soldier (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 05:18

There could be a stock bashing that kills in 2 strike but the 1st strike stuns the target, a knife that 1 shot 1 kill and is used Battlefield Bad Company Style but slower and finally a Bayonet attachment that is fast and 1 shot 1 kill

This Klaas would be me. Very pleased that this poll is finally here. Respect to the nightmaremappr.

If were fighting the Japanese in COD 5 they should use swords that the Japanese used. And cut peoples head off.That would be awesome.

 #18 - Posted by: RuhigSein (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 10:54

Or they could simply use my idea, where a soldier can realisticly pick up any available object he comes upon. Kinda like in Dead Rising for the 360. It wouldn't make any sense if two soldiers in hand to hand combat situations would just run around repetitevly trying to bash or knife eachother. They'd be fighting for survival of any way possible.

 #19 - Posted by: ammokid (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 02:43

when cod5 comes out and when it dosent hav much blood in it i WILL add alot of gore :D

 #20 - Posted by: ammokid (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 02:45

also i think they should put bayonets :D

 #21 - Posted by: WartyX (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 04:13

Bayonets were very rarely used on the end of rifles. they were unreliable and it rendered your weapon useless while it was sticking in somebody's gut. not to mention they often didn't actually bring the target down, and they were unwieldy indoors and in other close quarters environments. detatched bayonets and fighting knives, along with clubs and other malicious hand-to-hand weapons were much favoured amongst troops of all nations in all theatres.

 #22 - Posted by: DoomGangsta (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 14:08

Bayonet for sure, it's more original to the CoD series, its like bashign and knifing at the same time and who wouldn't want to run up to sombody, lunge their gun forward, and just see a baynoet on your gun hold sombodies body up as he's dieng, and then taking it out, to see him finally fall?

 #23 - Posted by: paulb39 (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 14:30

In gameplay vid it already showed its gonna use the gay knife from cod4. They should use Bayonet only if its realistic- IE it actually goes in the enemy, not having it look like ur poking him with it. (like in day of defeat) I personally like to bash (like in cod1), there is nothing better than bashing a guy then running away to have him helpless bleed to death while your on the other side of the map

 #24 - Posted by: Lokgarr (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 17:38

all of the above + let you pick up a samurai sword and cut some people apart }>

 #25 - Posted by: afcgrimm (Member) on 08-28-2008 at 12:31

Sticking the bayonet in him and then pulling the trigger. It's already M rated, might as well take advantage of that, right?

 #26 - Posted by: panzerjager1943 (Member) on 08-29-2008 at 17:34

in a recent video on IGN, it shows the player uses the knife. But I also assume there are bayonets (i think i heard on the CoD5 website.)

 #27 - Posted by: scillman (Member) on 08-30-2008 at 10:36

I know there are Bayonets and a Knifes but I don't know more for the new one!

 #28 - Posted by: Predator6sic6 (Member) on 08-31-2008 at 02:53

i reckon you could strangle them with the body of your weapon with them dropping to their knees and then finally passing out from behind...always a choke wire too...or grab the top of their head, and put gun to temple and ricochet a bullet round their skull :P i got loads of ideas...
