I love the idea of knocking back a player as a defensive move.
What would REALLY float my boat is if they (the developers) finally wake up and allow me to REMOVE the knife and/or prone from the sticks of the controller. Nothing gets me more deaths then when I'm simply trying to quickly aim my weapon, and instead I knife at the air, slowing me down from being able to shoot my weapon.
Let ME choose whether or not I want knife/prone on my sticks OR on my buttons. That would spare me SO many deaths.
While I do understand the idea of the knife taking 2 slashes to kill instead of one from the front, I disagree. However, I may have some solutions.
1. Like Ghamoora said, being shot should prevent knife motion/lunge OR reduce the lunge distance to almost zero.
2. Players cannot knife unless they have their kinfe pulled out. Prevents panic knifing and makes more logic and sense.
3. Gun Melee Bash - smash your enemy with your weapon. 50 damage (pistols 33). Has very little range.
Yes, I would like to see the bayonet coming back or any sore of melee attachemnt which isn't a tactical knife to pistols. Maybe a modern version of the bayonet, or something completely new.
Anyone knows what happend to the Ghosts Multiplayer Discussion Forum?
