Why do I get so many credits for a sword kill

It doesn’t seem to count towards any commendation.
I get 12 for a sword kill.
6 for a hammer kill.
6 for a shotgun kill.
4 for a grenade kill.

What’s the deal with this?

I have onyxed my close quarters commendation, hence I get 6 for everything to do with this, except for sword kills for some reason.

Sword Block should give you 100 credits for the skill it takes to pull it off. Skill/Internet luck.

You still get per-action credits after hitting Onyx for a commendation in Matchmaking. That doesn’t explain why a Sword gives so much, though.

Whenever there’s a close talking challenge for the day I noticed that every sword kill counts as 2 close range kills toward that challenge. I think that each kill with the sword is counted twice for some odd reason despite the fact that it only registers as 1 kill.

Apparently not much thought was involved.

Aah, then that explains it! So we should all be going for kills with the sword then!
