I'm frequently in situations where an enemy and I knife and miss each other twice before one of us gets the kill, which is really just an awkward fight.
It's so strange how divided the community is on the knife. On the one hand you've got folks who think it's not nearly good enough and talk about how it's ridiculous to "miss" with a knife, and on the other hand you've got people who think it's silly that the knife will beat a submachine gun even if the fellow with the fun manages to get several bullets into his knife assailant.
While I like having the knife for times when you sneak up on someone and want to finish them off quickly without wasting ammo, I have to say I am somewhat annoyed by the guarenteed leathality of it. It seems to me that if I've gotten a few rounds from my gun into you, and you attack me with a knife from the front, you shouldn't be the one coming out on top.
I'd really prefer to see the knife be made less effective for frontal assaults somehow, while maintaining its sure-kill power when catching an enemy offguard. Perhaps having your knife swing stopped if you take a round on the way in?
