In Call of Duty where you go to shoot someone and in your excitement press too hard on the control stick and melee helplessly whilst your opponent guns you down.
"You were one away from a killsteak man what happened??"
"I panic knifed..."
Friend: That's what you get for bringing a gun to a gun fight.
Me: That's ok, I'm sure they'll realize that panic knifing is a fundamental problem with the CoD series and fix it for Mw3.
