Will this game have bayonet attachments?

Or does it work like in NW just press on a button and whoop in melee mode? :D

Usually soldiers would attach bayonets before initiating a charge or entering combat, but it would be infuriating if you had to do that every time one entered combat in-game. I would think that this is one scenario where gameplay trumps real life, so expect the same thing as NW.

Would it really be that much of an annoyance to fix your bayonet each time you spawn if you wanted it fixed at all times, though?

In North and South you need to attach your bayonet xdd and it's not that big of a deal if you do it like at spawn

I have mixed feelings on this, although I like the simplicity of having the bayonet always attached, having an attachable bayonet just adds a little extra.

I do hope its like in NW but attaching the bayonet with a polished animation is really immersive.

I'm curious as to what the downside would be (On the players' side, anyways. It'd definitely involve more work for the devs) to having fixable/removable bayonets. If you want it to be like NW, just fix it when you spawn, and away you go.

It would be nice to have little things like being able to attach bayonets. This game has a brilliant opportunity to fill in all the gaps that NW missed/made a poor job of.

How about an option to spawn with a bayonet or without, if it really annoys you.
Then you can just manually attach or detach it when needed to

Just to expand on the bayonet idea. A bayonet, whether sword or pointed. Should be a spare item you can draw when not fixed onto your firearm.

Did soldiers actually use their bayonets as swords tho?

I think that this would work well if line infantry spawned with bayonets and French light voltigeurs and British riflemen without them.
