Will there be knives in the game? If so will it just be basic slashing motions, or will it be more dynamic? Like sneak up behind someone press the T key to grab the person and left click to slit a throat, or right click to stab in the back? A single back stab would harm the enemy but he would scream, you could either use this to your advantage to lure someone out and use the said person as a human shield so long as they where alive but even then you could use their body. But if they are alive then the shooters will think twice before they open fire.

Never thought about that. I did see a human shield in the game towards the end of the game play trailer. That would bring up some very interesting situations like. Should I go for the shot? Should I hold back and get back up? Should I just kill them both? etc.

Yes on the former and probably not on the latter as we don't want to bite off more than we can chew.

Knives would be cool, but the slash motion in CS gets old. I want a game where I can hammer a knife into a guys head and watch him fall down with it still in his skull. Plus, the slashy thing would only scrape the guy. If you were going to kill someone with a knife in reality I think you'd either cut his throat or slam it into him as hard as you could.

In my Latin book from last year they had a quote (it was from an old Roman military journal thingy). I can't remember verbatim, but it goes something like this:

"I laugh when I see soldiers slashing with their swords, for a stab will almost certainly kill an enemy even with minimal penetration."

Stabbing > Slashing

If knives are put into the game, there needs to be Fairbairn Sykes.

Slashing the throat does not always (albeit hardly ever) constitute a silent kill.


Stabbing the knife or sharp object in question far enough into the base of the skull will result in a complete and permanent shut down of the nerve system.

If knife kills are implemented, they need to be very hard to do, at least I believe so. I'm talking about having to know where you're walking and creeping, not just slow crouch walking, creeeeeping.

My opinion.

And the knife needs to stay in their head while they fall down, very cool looking.

George Silver, in his "Paradoxes of Defense," said that no fight is complete without both cut and thrust. But they are both opinionated dead people speaking of swords, not knives. :D

personally, if a game allows u to grab a guy, id be surprised if u couldnt do some nice stuff with knives. and even if u cant, it should still be in so u can prove ur 1337 skills

the game allows you to grab dead guys.

Even so Knife kills are loud, way to loud to be of any use.
Thats why knives are pretty much exclusivly used as tools.

This guy should really search after some medical help. Jesus. Cool down a bit.
