That's not what I'm suggesting.

I mean in these battles that the troops have their bayonets at the ready, all you have to do is press no.1 on your keyboard to switch to bayonet.
There is no need to attach the bayonet when you press no.1 because the bayonet is already on the end of your rifle. You still attack with your bayonet like you do currently except you don't wait for an animation to load.

FH2 needs this on maps just to make certain maps look/play more realistic. Just google search 'Tobruk WW2' for instance and a huge amount of the pictures are British soldiers with bayonets on their rifles.

In FH2 you NEVER see bayonets.

He says when the soldier spawns, the bayonet is allready attached. There is no deploy animation for the bayonet, so you can stab people quicker.

In a Coles-Charge-map or a mad-red-dash-across-a-plaza-in-Stalingrad-map, or in Pacific, I see this as a good solution/suggestion. Other than that, no.

I'd like to see it, the russians had their bayonets on most of the time anyways.

I request an immediate nerfing of AI artillery in the next patch, and that O. Carlen be stricken from the bot name list! This British bastard just nailed my Stuka with a mortar while I was 20m off the ground and at full speed. No, it wasn't splash damage from the ground, he hit the bloody plane directly with a shell!

That's because Mosins were sighted in with bayonets attached IIRC, so they were actually more accurate with bayonets on. Anyway I suggested the same thing before. There are 2 exactly identical rifleman kits on Tunis and Ramelle I think, so why not give one of them a permanently attached bayonet...

Saying Cole's Charge and Stalingrad I don't think you realise how often British soldiers went into battle with bayonets attached before they even saw the enemy.

Christ they still do it now sometimes.

It's not just for practical reasons either (stabbing people) it also increases the moral of the troops who are wielding them. No doubt it's also more scary to be fighting against.


There really are so many maps where it should be standard. I don't know why anyone would be against the idea.

Tbh it just looks silly as fck when everyone has bayonets attached.. back in the day of Resistance'n'Liberation's alpha days, the bayonets were permanently fixed and it was among the things that really made me want to quit playing the mod, seeing all the 82nd guys with bayonet mounted Garands. Player should always be able to attach/detach bayonets at their own will IMO.

Why not make them like the NCO kit? 2 different selections: one attached and one detached.

And why do you want it if you wouldn't be able to use it? If sb wants a bayonet charge he will simply attach it...

bayonet charges are left in WW1, man. and lets face it, in public servers you cannot organise a proper charge that easily. Aaand not forgetting the enemies that pop up from corners. The enemy is not stationary (for long time at least) in FH2 to have a massive bayonet charge.

...the fuck?

look, just have the bayonet on all the time, I can't count the times I've been killed while attaching it.

anyways, someone make the british uniforms more visible in the sand and it appears there is a hitbox bug on infantry, as some are apparently impervious to bullets.

Removing the bayonet from the rifle was forbidden unless the person in charge in the field gave the explicit order to do so.
 Mosin nagant rifles were balanced with there bayonets and were sighted in WITH the bayonets. Removal of the bayonet wont affect accuracy at close range, but 300-400 meters...thats were you will see the diffrence.

Saying it looks 'silly as f**k' to see soldiers with bayonets is like saying it looks silly to see soldiers with ppsh41s in Stalingrad.

In many of the battles on FH2 it looks considerably more 'silly' that NOBODY has bayonets.

When you search 'Tobruk WW2' in the first 5 images I get TWO with soldiers with bayonets:


Of the other 3, one is a map, one is of prisoners and the third is too small to really decipher.
There are dozens of similar images the further you scroll.

I agree most maps shouldn't have them at the ready but others NEED them!

In FH2 bayonets are like unicorns. People know the myth, but nobody can be sure they've actually seen one! :D

But whats the point of having them all the time attached if you will have to switch "the gun" in order to use it?
