Knife counters from the front?

Excellent idea.

Knife counters from the rear?, hell no.

It would be a good idea if the knife counter would only be available from the front, like the guy is in the video - you can see a little "[F] Counter knife" thing pop up while the enemy soldier is facing the player. Thus, if it is coming from behind, you wouldn't know what was happening and can't react fast enough - makes sense, the enemy put in the effort to sneak up behind you. However, if the enemy is just (panic) knifing from the front, giving a chance to counter that would make sense because you could see it coming.
that actually makes alot of sense

But front knifing isn't an instant kill...Unless its going to be in this one. I hope it isn't cos it'll just turn into a re-run of CoD/BC2 :pinch:

Counter knife has been confirmed to only be available from the front. Knives from the back are certain kills.

(there's always been front knife btw, just doesn't happen very often :>)

I did hear also that spamming the "f" key doesn't automatically mean you get the counter, so you actually do have to wait for the prompt to appear on screen before hitting "f" in order to counter it.
Not sure how they made it anti-spam, but I guess it's not something you can train for and win 100% of the time.

I think to further this they should have made it a random key among X amount of keys. For example, if it can be E, F, R, Q, or Space it could be any one of those that shows up as a counter. Not only do you have to be quick, you have to have good awareness and instinct, much like if you were countering IRL.
FarCry3 is like this to some degree.
