Battlefield 4

Melee weapons are greatly expanded in variety in Battlefield 4, though they all function identically. Against infantry, knives now exclusively perform Knife Takedown attacks, with slashing attacks limited to destruction of enemy gadgets or obstacles. Takedowns can be performed at all angles including in water. Knife attacks from the front whilst standing can now be countered if the players hit the melee button within a period of time.

Battlefield 4 features a total of twenty-one knives, all featuring the same statistics and function, and each with its own kill count.
