    From what I've heard, going ADS without it on after sprinting is faster, but I don't know for sure.

    do the benefits of having it off outweigh the benefits of having it on for obvious reasons

    Bayonet charge is a one hit kill that surprises enemies behind corners and can allow you to close on and kill a fleeing enemy from 30 meters out.

    Don't see a reason to leave it off.

    Then there's the satisfying animation that's just a cherry on top.

    I'll never go without it.

    I NEVER remember to bayonet anybody which is kind of annoying, but I remember reading that ADS is *meant* to be quicker.

    ADS and reloading is quicker with it off. Recoil is also reduced, which I find strange, I would have thought the weight of the bayonet would reduce recoil and it would be increased if taken off................

    Without the bayonet, your gun will fire its first bullet faster when you shoot while you're sprinting. This is beneficial in close quarters combat, when you're sprinting and an enemy pops up. I consider taking off the bayonet when I play with an SMG or shotgun, because with these weapons I am mostly on flanking routes / behind enemy lines. That fast first shot really gives you an advantage in these situations.
    As a Medic I play a bit more defensive and there is less need for that faster first bullet. I think a bayonet on your Medic weapon gives you a high chance of killing a sentry and revive the sentry's victims after. Even if that happens only once in a game, it's worth more than a faster first bullet that doesn't help as much anyway with a self-loading rifle.

    i see no reason to take it off bayonet comes in handy since it's a one hit kill that most players can't react too fast enough

    Never have it on if I roll a class that has them.

    I don't, on any class.

    Purely for cosmetic purposes, I like the cleaner look of the gun without it. Also my aim is terrible, I am liable to miss, run straight past them and over the nearest sand dune into the distance :D

    If I happen to get behind someone I could bayonet charge I usually just catch up to them and one-hit them with me knife.

    Don't use it. Only on Martini Henry and maybe I'll use it on other BA rifles.

    I remove it first thing on all weapons, all classes. I tried to use it in the beginning but found it sort of clunky. It is just not in my reflexes + I'm an ADS addict so I want the extra time. Also it is often revealing as it has a tendency to stick out from corners and through walls etc as your rifle get longer. I have learned to dodge and counter knife it quite well. Makes me feel like some Martial Arts master when it goes well.

    I really WANT to like the bayonet, the idea of it is so cool, and its so satisfying when you get a successful charge. One of my favorite things to do to break a siege, toss a smoke or two, then bayonet charge straight thru the smoke into the enemy position. (Mostly effective indoors obviously) Really satisfying when it works out.

    Only problem is I usually end up getting myself killed instead. The smallest step sideways from the target and I rush past them like an idiot, with a giant target on my back saying "HEY, SHOOT ME SHOOT ME" I end up staring at my corpse on the respawn screen, shaking my head, saying to myself "I shoulda just shot the guy..."

    Plus, I do notice a small difference without the bayonet. I love to use guns that everyone else casts aside, so I've been using the Factory autoloading 8.35. With only 5 bullets, the lesser accuracy and poorer recoil with bayonet do make quite a difference.
