- > For the weapon, see Combat Knife.
Melee is close action kill in every Modern Combat.
Modern Combat: SandstormEdit
In Modern Combat: Sandstorm, the player will kill an enemy with the stock of the equipped weapon.
Modern Combat 2: Black PegasusEdit
Modern Combat 3: Fallen NationEdit
In Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation players will kill enemies with Combat Knife. The mechanics are relatively unchanged from the previous title. You can miss the target if it is walking. If the enemy didn't notice you, you will kill the enemy putting the knife in his neck or twist his neck. This only works in the campaign.
Modern Combat 4: Zero HourEdit
Melee in Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour almost works same way melee in Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, but the shoot button changes in a melee button when an enemy is in range. This makes performing melee attacks a lot easier.
Modern Combat 5: BlackoutEdit
In Modern Combat 5: Blackout, performing the melee action is the same as in Fallen Nation: it is a separate button that pops up when an enemy is close enough again. The melee action itself has been drastically improved since MC4. There are multiple animations for stabbing enemies.
The range of the melee attack can be increased with the Assasin mask.
The Legion armor is immune to knife attacks.
