You can one-hit kill helmet-wearing soldiers in Battlefield 5 with a headbutt, just like in real life

You can murder people by sticking the nut on them in Battlefield 5.

Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good punt to the nose. There’s something special about a well-deployed headbutt and its ability to surprise. It’s an effective pre-emptive strike, and a good nut is a great way to end any heated conversation.

Even movies love bludgeoning people with forehead bone. But if Bill the Butcher taught us anything, it’s that the humble headbutt is only a fatal technique if applied continuously, and it probably leaves the aggressor with a headache.

Now imagine how sore that forehead would be if your opponent was wearing a helmet designed to make bullets ricochet off it. That’s where we are in Battlefield 5, a game set within the historic battlegrounds of WW2.

If you find an enemy laid prone on their backs in Battlefield 5, you can hit the melee button to do a Zidane-style Mortal Kombat finisher on their face. Here’s a video:

Apparently one of the melee animations is to literally headbutt the person to death. from r/BattlefieldV

Like I said in my Battlefield 5 review – war is hell.
