The melee attack will vary depending on where the player is situated in relation to the stunned enemy. In multiplayer, the knife's appearance varies in accordance with the player's faction.
The Bayonet found in the Mark 1 Lancer Assault Rifle is an attached Combat Knife. Combat Knives are the most common form of melee weapon in the Gears universe, with the Coalition of Ordered Governments and Union of Independent Republics using it for the Mark 1 Lancers and Commando teams, and the Locust Horde and the Swarm being standard-issue for their infantry.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Combat Knife being able to harm members of the Swarm is rather unusual, as the knife bayonets of the Retro Lancers were useless on the Swarm's predecessors (due to their thick skin). Therefore, in order for the Combat Knife to harm the Swarm, either its blade must be made of a denser material, or the Swarm had less thick skin in comparison to the Locust.
