Can't Knife Turrets

Today, David Vonderhaar announced on Twitter that players will be unable to knife any of the Turrets found in the upcoming Black Ops 2 multiplayer. In his opinion, the ability to knife turrets made them completely under-powered and undervalued. Speaking on Twitter, David (who is one of the lead developers at Treyarch) had this to say:
You can't knife turrets in Black Ops 2 MP. It was destroying where they were they existed in the power/value band.
If you played the previous game, you'd know that SAM Turrets were sitting ducks because a) they showed up on the map when they fired and b) they were easily destroyed with a one-hit knife. At the moment, the only turret that we know of is the Guardian Turret, which projects microwaves at enemy players and impairs their vision/slows them down.

What do you guys think? Is this a good idea?

  2. Think it's a great idea, they were just pretty much useless after the first kill unless you were REALLY sneaky about placement.

  5. This is good for a singular reason-it makes the EMP grenade actually USEFUL for something.

  7. This is a bad idea there should be a certain type of perk that can let you destroy then because then what are you going to do if you're playing ctf and they put the turret near the flag. You won't be able to get it and capture it

  9. Dude it says that you wont be able to knife turrets? the SAM turret is mentioned as a example in my opinion... Its not weird to think this is applied to all turrets.
