What melee weapon do you use & why?

What weapon do you prefer in hand to hand combat?

For me it's the hatchet - high damage, slow recharge, with great utility functions.

The Knives still have the double hit glitch, so they are effectively an 80 damage weapon. I prefer them for this reason.

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

If it weren't for the assignments I'm working on, the Sawtooth and (when I get it) the Saber. The Bedouin Dagger is also nice.

was it fixed for the hatchet? and wouldn't it result in the same... well, result using just a hatchet at that point?

This is a good idea for a thread. For me, aesthetically it's the shovel, for utility it's the hatchet, and for when I find myself accidentally hitting R3 when trying to aim at an enemy , I switch to one of the knives as they have the shortest animations. I haven't found myself doing that as much these days but for a long time it was a real reflexive problem for me in both BF1 and BF4.

I wish they put a little more effort into this, with tiny tweaks to range, kill angle and damage to differentiate the weapons. It sucks that some are just straight upgrades. Still the best melee out of any of the BF games I've played.

I got my 500th hatchet kill before coming into work.
Taking a random leap of faith off of the bridge on Argonne Forest TDM and hatcheting the Wex flammentruppen for an instakill.
Being bayonetted immediately following it was the icing on the metaphorical cake.

EDIT: I forgot to ask - how long has the double hit glitch been in the game, and why haven't I noticed it before? Bayonets also are like hand to hand weapons right?

Bugged weapons and weapons you have to jump through hoops to unlock aside, the Hatchet is really the best melee weapon in the game. The whole "damage vehicles" perk isn't very useful considering it only applies against lightly-to-unarmored vehicles. Destroying wood and barbed wire (clearing paths) is generally going to be far more useful. And the Hatchet does both of those. . .
