I really don't understand how meele mechanics work in this game. I am used to Bf3/Bf4 style where hitting enemy frontally is a regular hit that takes 2/3 slashes to kill, and if you attack from the back/side it triggers a OHK animation.
Yet I have some problems in Bf1. I had multiple situation where I press "F" while standing behind an enemy just to get a hit worth 25/35hp depending on the weapon. I often had to dash it 2/3 times to get an animation, once I even killed a guy from behind with 4 hits, 25hp each, no takedown animation.
Then I sometimes run into enemies, start panick shooting just to get knifed frontally with a OHK animation, with the enemy being in my sight 100% of the time.
Can someone explain how it's supposed to work exactly?
