    Battlefield 4: the new counter-knife action...

    How do you think the new counter-knife action will work in this game?

    I do hope you do not have to press a button within a couple of milli seconds because all that will lead to is everyone mashing the counter button, unless its a random button each time or a combination then that MIGHT work!?

    Maybe a specialisation you can unlock?

    I don't think you should get extra points of your successful at countering either, that will just lead to spamming that stuff I think. It would be ok if you got a 100 points for the kill and then just an additional 10 for the counter perhaps?


    What do you guys think?

    The whole thing sounds quite stupid. We should be able to knife someone without thinking "I hope he/she doesn't counter m... damn it, the person countered me!". But my main concern is, I the hope the game isn't too cinamatic (with quick cutscenes of you countering and knife kill).

    Re: Battlefield 4: the new counter-knife action...

    I think the concept is cool and all, but I too feel that after awhile people are going to do nothing but mash the counter button (whatever it will be) and we won't ever be able to knife.

    I know it sounds stupid or just unneeded, but in BF3 I hated it when I'd be knifing someone and I'd be getting shot/killed from another....it was like "Well, I got the knife/tags, but I got skilled without being able to protect myself." The reason I bring that up is because I feel as if we will be open targets again (even longer this time) if we have this counter action.

    Overall, I like that DICE added in the feature because it will keep the action fast pace since you can try and counter the knife and then keep rolling, but I'm sure it's going to have its problems in the beginning.

    Man will always be a man. There is no new man. We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there'd be nothing to envy your neighbor. But there's always something to envy. A smile, a friendship, something you don't have and want to appropriate. In this world there will always be rich and poor. Rich in gifts, poor in gifts. Rich in love, poor in love.

    I hope to God you won't be able to counter assassinations or whatever they are called (the knifes from behind) if you're gonna charge with a knife and had the ability to counter that would be pretty cool.

    Well see when it comes out. It will depend on how they apply the counter action

    Um it makes the game more realistic because usually the two teams are as skilled as one another(not talking about the actual people plying but rather the factions). I don't know how to explain it but not every soldier is clueless, they know what to do when they feel the hand move over their mouth or when their knee gets kicked in, they know how to counter it... I thought it was lame that you couldn't do anything when someone came up behind you a knifed you except yell or hope a team mate shoots him.
    So it makes the game more realistic so therefore i'm all for it! That's what bf is shooting for, if ya don't like realistic knifing then there is a game called Call of Duty: MW3 MW2 BO2 BO MW1 WAW ETC.

    From the videos I've watched, you can only counter-knife if the attacker attacks from the front. Anything else, side, back, or being prone, you cannot counter-knife.

    I like this idea.

    I heard the same....
    I also heard that if you were to knife someone and they counter your knife than you can't counter their counter.

    Man will always be a man. There is no new man. We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there'd be nothing to envy your neighbor. But there's always something to envy.

    If its anything like this then I think it can work pretty well.


    I have always wanted to see in this game a small cinamatic clip of stealing an enemy vehicle with them inside. Or maybe a scene where you can jump on top of a tank and drop a frag inside once the vehicle has been immobilised, basically taking out the enemy inside but then still leaving the vehicle in tact enough to repair it for use.

    Sound good to anyone else or am I just dreaming?

    Re: Battlefield 4: the new counter-knife action...

    This sounds awesome I'm also hoping for eject seats on jets and possibly 2 people jets would be cool.along with gun jams that would be so awesome if they have any desert maps were sand can get in you're gun or jungle maps with muddy areas that can also jam you're gun(but it happens rarely to not make it annoying). I'd also be cool if you could rappel from a helicopter down this way you don't have to land that close to the ground to let someone out or a few people out. Maybe also introduce gillie suits for snipers ONLY In desert/jungle maps. Town/city maps would get normal camo I'd also like to see some dark maps were you can get night vision goggles.
