Interesting. May explain some frustrating circumstances.

Also, isn't the desert the biggest map?

Does make a lot of sense, but why the hell does dice havent made anything about it, and how can this be, does the takedown divide by zero or what?

I've heard somebody say it was an engine limitation with Frostbite 2.0

Don't see what the limitation applies to though, is it a matter of syncing the take-down animations between two clients?

Seems awful bizarre.

The only reason I could think of is, that DICE wanted to prevent someone knifing someone else who is also knifing, and they made this cheap workaround.

Otherwise Frostbite would be a really, really bad engine if it can't handle 2 animations simultaneously and calculate the outcome.

I'm sure it's just something that's never been tested. I tweeted them the video, asking if they were aware of it and they replied "We are now, thanks, forwarding the info to the devs".

Well, during the 150 hours I have played the game, I have never encountered this "broken" knife effect shown in the video.
I only have 96 kills though, but whenever I failed one, it was the classic "enemy turns around too early" bug.

i've only found a delay in knifing when i have flanked a whole squad a noobs and i am knifing them one by one.  splutters a few seconds but i just attributed that to maybe being too eager to shaft them.

do you guys actually pull out the knife and then use it? 

I've assigned middle mouse for melee so as soon as i press the button it automatically goes into stab mode, i've never once experienced a knife bug despite seeing complaints about it since day one.

My knife key is E. If I tap it, it will swing once then go back to my gun, or if I'm behind someone then it'll go into the animation, then back to my gun. I think you will just swing if the knife isn't already out and this "bug" occurs.

If I hold E,  it'll do the above except keep the knife out afterwards.

I have it set to a mouse button. It really depends on the type of game you are playing I used to play a lot of TDM on maps like Noshar and it would happen virtually every other knife attempt, which would be explained by the fact that loads of people are trying to get knife kills.

have it set to a thumb side button, and it still spazzes out if i'm on a stab spree. i normally stab one, put a silenced shot into the head then slash, then properly stab the next person.

Just came up behind two guys on Metro. I press the instant-knife button and lo-and-behold it doesn't work. I switch to my gun but it's too late, he turned around and wasted me. I look up at the kill messages and there was a knife kill as I was doing one.

Well, that explains a lot. Surely they can just get rid of the animation and just kill the person, like in BF2?

No wait, that makes far too much sense.

now fixed

Knife takedown fix
Fixed so that there can be multiple knife kills at the same time on a server.

Rationale: We had a bug where only one knife takedown could take place at any one time on one server. If you attempted a knife takedown at the exact same time as someone else on the server, the takedown animation wouldn’t play, and your opponent wouldn’t take any damage. This has now been fixed.
