Knife training.png

The Knife is the only melee weapon in the game. It seems to have the property of a "One-Hit Kill".

The Knife is automatically equipped and can be deployed at any time. The deployment speed of the Knife depends upon the weapon-switch speed of the currently-equipped weapon.

The default button to swing the Knife is

The Knife's deployment speed can be increased with the Scout Skill "Knife Training" (4 SP Icon.png, 15,000 CRLogo.png).

The Scout Skill "Scout Master" (6 SP Icon.png, 90,000 CRLogo.png) increases the EXP earned from achieving kills with the Knife by x3.


  • The Kedr has the fastest Knife deployment speed, due to the short weapon-switch animation, followed by the Glock 18.
  • HeadShots with the Knife count towards the currently-equipped weapon; this can be useful for W-Tasks and Achievements.
  • The Knife animation can be used to cancel unnecessary reloads. This is especially useful in HardCore Mode. YouTuber MarshalOne frequently utilizes this maneuver.


There are thirteen Contracts that require the Knife.


Achievements you can unlock using this gun.
