Well, for starters, urban environments, tyranid swarms, jungles...

Low visibility, drop troopers...

Basically, its easier to think of ways they WONT get in bayonet range.

That's also what i thought, but what about power armor ETC.
How would a bayonet penetrate?

Well if you belive the fluff the battle blades used by the Marines at least are Mono-edged. that is the edge is actually only a single molacule in thinckness the entire length of the blade. Mono-filament wire, which is the same idea basicly, is able to cut pretty much anything when it's held tense, including what ever is used to mount it.

Yeah, what he said.

Anyway, bayonets are not designed for hurting enemies in full armour, they are for hurting the most common enemies that IG will realisticly face, i.e. rebels, heretics, perhaps orks. It is quite rare that they would fight anyone in power armour or similar

Not twice anyway.

But there is always a use for a knife on a stick.

It's not a stick... it's a flashlight!

Blades are designed to target non-armoured areas of an enemy, like joints, throats and eyes. Even on Power Armour these areas are relatively unarmoured (since if they were, mobility would be very limited).

One of my friends complains that close combat is too big a part of 40k, and it would never realistically happen. I've given up explaining things to him.
