I understand when I am behind someone and I melee I go into an execute animation and kill them thats fine. But I've ran at people and knifed them point blank from the front (twice) and only gotten hit markers and the COD style horizontal slash, however when someone Runs straight at me and does the same to me they get an execture animation where the knife gets shoved into my neck... WTF is going on here, this pisses me off to no end.
