Melee Ribbons!

Yes, it's come to this... melee ribbons.
A melee ribbon is earned by killing three enemies with your knife in one game. Besides the obvious 'go-knife-camping-snipers', is there another way to earn these efficiently?

I'd like to go on record by saying I like you already :)

I'm working on those assignments as well. I've done the bronze one and am on the silver one. I've had the most success just knifing the groups of snipers on certain maps. Another good trick is if you have the flank off on a few people try and leave one alive to end with a knife kill in safety (this is with a suppressor). Or is there is a single isolated enemy they are usually a good target, however I've had bullshit happen when I'm in the animation and all four of his squadmates squad bomb... I found Paracel storm is good for knife kills because it's dark and loud so people don't see or hear you killing their buddies. Flood zone is decent as well because of the multi-levels. But hill snipers are the best source of tags. I dunno if they do this on PC, but on Xbox I've had snipers go across the map in order to snipe on the hill closest to our spawn on Hainan Resort on the US team. This is really nice because they have beacons and keep coming back. I killed this one dummy in the same spot half a dozen times and the only reason I didn't kill him anymore was because the round ended.

If you think you can handle it you could always join a knife-only server. It is the most broken shit in the game and you will be tearing your hair in frustration (seriously, try it and you will know what I mean): it is just one big clusterfuck of counter-knifing and knifing players that are knifing players that are knifing players, complete BS/luck/black magic and what you see is never what you get. But it gets the shit done.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

I've got 1. One single ribbon after several hundred hours of gametime!

Even though I have in the region of 200 knife kills, it's rare that I ever get more than 1 per match, let alone 4! I remember the match in which I got my lone ribbon. It was Flood Zone CQ and I seem to remember getting really lucky with my swings with oblivious enemies.

They really are the most grindiest of all grinds. How many is it for the assignment, 20? So many...

Protip: move to any Eastern Europian country, join German/French/GB server, and press knife button whenever enemy soldier is close to you (~5 meters or so). 10 rounds or so on Conquest with high Ticket count -- and you've complited this assigment.

One more protip: disable the chat and don't knife admins this way.

There are knife only servers on PC... I cannot begin to imagine the frustration playing that. I'll just stick to knifing hill snipers, they are nice and stupid prey.

I'm usually an asshole and look for spawn bacon in remote locations. I stand right next to the bacon and when someone spawns in I give 'em an instant blade to the neck. If you are lucky the idiot will spawn there several times trying to avoid or kill you and its nearly impossible to avoid unless he gets lucky and gets a counter because DICE...
