Insta-Kill Bayonet or not?

Could’ve sworn that the bayonets on weapons used to be instant kill on Spartans but recently they defo have not been. Have 343 changed this or something, or has anyone else noticed?
Thanks

You may be encountering people who are using the Upgraded Shields armor mod. I’m pretty sure it allows you to survive a hit from an Energy Bayonet, as well as sniper headshots.

The hit detection with the bayonet is off at times, I’ve hit people with a bayonet and it didn’t even pop their shields. But as a previous post said, it may be because of the upgraded shields armor mod.
