but it's not only in S&D, people just use their knife instead of their gun all the time, if they made you unable to melee while being shot it would balance better.
By tenth prestige I might have one class for knifing (assuming we will get 10 classes by tenth prestige) but other wise I might have one knife class...I don't have a good layout for knifing it takes to long cause my melee is B
I like the idea of a Knife as a Secondary. It would certainly make people think more carefully about their loadout. I'd probably keep the knife on half my classes since I like the Stealth Approach, and I'm always getting in knifing range of people, but Pistols would be used for those maps where you can't really sneak around.

I definetly think the standard knife needs a nerf. Even without commando, the lung is pretty ridiculous.
I personally think the lung should be removed completely, to make the knife only usable at extreme close range, and therefore being a last resort, like it should be, rather than a weapon of its own.
The knife should never trump the gun.
Kmife doesn't beat SMG or shotgun in close range, Knife doesn't beat AR/Sniper rifle in medium/long range. Quite balanced IMHO.
