And to round the list off, while we’ve talked about snipers and rocket launchers, tanks and MAV’s, and jets and helicopters, we haven’t talked about the best weapon of all: The knife.

There is something endlessly hilarious about bringing a knife to a gun fight and winning. Knife kills in Battlefield 3 are brutally animated, and there’s no lunging forward like a ninja with a blade in this game. You’re going to have to be smart, and you’re going to have to be quick, to build a collection of dog tags, like whoever shot this rather long video has done.

If you’re feeling up to the challenge, load up your copy of Battlefield 3, and get to stabbing.
