Not sure why they decided to butcher it in Starhawk.
The knife was one of the most popular weapons in Warhawk, even going as far as creating ceremonial blades.
The Starhawk version needs to be scrapped ASAP imo

couldnt agree more. i feel cheap doing it, sometimes feel robbed getting killed, mainly from getting knifed when i didnt even get the prompt or getting the prompt push r3 and my charecter does a stupid lunge leaving me completely vulnerable and end up getting knifed. warhawk had the knife perfect i never felt cheap or cheated it was a pure kill unless it was uber laggy.

I agree with every one on this the melee has to be the worst melee I have ever seen , I thought the creators might of took some inspiration from killzone with the fixing tool rip-off , so why did they not rip off the great melee attacks from kz3 stabbing in the face , slitting off the throat , 2 fingers in the eyes with a neck brake but we get an Errol flin pansy melee attack that has an impossible reach i think the starhawk team should stop watching pirate movies, jack sparrow would be proud of the melee tho ,lolz

I personally don't have a problem with the knife being R3 nor do I have a problem with the knifing action (swipe) I do have a problem with the distance the attack works at so my suggestion is just reducing the distance.
Really it should be one step away (plus the reaching distance) to kill someone.
Make the melee a close range kill again (not 5 + foot)
I quite like the knifing animation as it is TBH.
Agree I dont really mind having to hit R3, its just the silly notification that pops up on the screen, I mean are players that bad that they need to be told when to use a weapon.

I dont really use the knife unless im "warhawk knife distance"
And I can often shotgun a knife sprinter plenty befor he gets to me (if I see him comming anyways). using a knife against him usually just gets me killed too.
EDIT: but yeah I agree, ditch the preschool handicap

I think the knife is fine tbh. I'd rather have this than the Warhawk knife which barely worked half the time unless the person was standing completely still. It's not hard to avoid people trying to knife you in this game; if you see them running towards you whip out the shotty, throw a grenade in their path, run to make some distance, or knife them yourself. There's also a huge whiff animation to the knife so if you successfully manage to dodge someone you can just knife them in recovery.
