Battlefield 1Edit


Knives return in various forms as melee weapons in Battlefield 1. As with Battlefield Hardline, a selection of other melee weapons is also available, including hand tools, clubs, and the Cavalry Sword.

All knives share the same statistics, except the Sawtooth Knife which functions similar to heavy melee weapons. Knives have a damage output of 35 and a speed rating of 90. Knives also have the largest takedown range of all melee weapons.

TakedownsEdit

Takedowns occur any time that a melee weapon would inflict lethal damage on an opponent, although rear and prone takedowns can be performed on enemies at any health. Melee weapons inflict less damage to enemies facing the player, but may still result in a takedown.
