Battlefield 4 Knife
The Battlefield 4 Knife is the trusted weapon that has been with the series since the beginning. Getting a kill with the Knife in Battlefield 4 is considered a great achievement, as it’s the toughest kill to pull off in the game. The Battlefield 4 Knife is similar to previous ones in the series, and works the same way: players can select the knife and search for an enemy to slice/stab/cut, or they can perform a quick knife kill by pressing a dedicated button.
There are different versions of the Battlefield 4 Knife, from the standard combat knife (based on the KA-BAR), to one that’s exclusive to Premium members, to a Shank, which is a smaller, lighter knife.
Battlefield 4 Knife overview
The Knife in Battlefield 4 is a melee weapon, meaning that players have to get right next to the enemy in order to perform a kill. While getting a knife kill was previously guaranteed, players in BF4 can perform a counter-attack if they’re quick on their feet. To kill someone, or perform a counter-attack, players have to quickly press the Knife button (“F” on the PC”).
- Ammunition: infinite
- Damage (takedown): 1 hit kill
- Damage (slash): 50% health
Instead of a knife takedown, which results in one hit kill if performed correctly, players can also swing to slash with the knife. Each slash contributes 50% damage to the enemy.
