For the default melee weapon, see Knife.

The Combat Knife is a melee weapon featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as well as making a brief appearance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

The Combat Knife makes a brief appearance in levels Just Like Old Times and Endgame. It is used by John "Soap" MacTavish to kill Shepherd.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

The Combat Knife again makes a brief appearance, this time it is not used by player, but John Price, in mission Stronghold. It also appears in mission "Back on the Grid", but it is unobtainable.

Level 4

Only found in multiplayer, it is available if the player removes a primary and/or secondary weapon, which is then replaced by Combat Knife in-game. In addition, planting an Assault Shield will leave the player with their other weapon (if they had one) and a Combat Knife. Therefore, a Combat Knife does not cost an Allocation Point in Create-a-Class.

Compared to the standard knife, it features a faster melee speed and a small amount of lunge. It is held in the right hand, as opposed to the standard being held in the left. The player also does not grunt when knifing, unlike with the standard. Lastly, equipping the Combat Knife grants a 50% increase in sprint duration. Another unique feature is that while the Combat Knife is equipped, pressing the fire button will use the knife. It should also be noted that the combat knife cannot be used to destroy ground scorestreaks such as the Sentry Gun and Guardian.

The challenges for the camouflages are:

  • DEVGRU - Get 10 kills with the Combat Knife (knife is held instead of a weapon).
  • A-TACS AU - Get 20 kills with the Combat Knife (knife is held instead of a weapon).

"Standard issue military knife for CQC. Fast, quiet and deadly."
— Description

The Combat Knife reappears in Call of Duty: Ghosts. Equipping the Combat Knife grants a 75% increase in sprint duration. Just like in Black Ops II, the fire button will use the knife. Unlike in Black Ops II, the Combat Knife can be selected like other weapons in the Create-A-Class directly. As well, it is automatically selected when the player clears their Primary Weapon in Create-A-Soldier. It can be picked up and dropped during gameplay, unlike back in Black Ops II. The Combat Knife is also found as the last weapon in Gun Game, where it is used with the Throwing Knife. Getting kills with the Combat Knife in Gun Game does not count towards their streak, and instead will simply act the same as a regular melee kill in Gun Game would. Equipping the Combat Knife in Multiplayer gives players an extra perk slot. The Combat Knife is the primary weapon of the Maniac gunstreak, alongside the Throwing Knife.

  • Fast Melee - Gold Knife only, unlocked at Prestige 5

Gold KnifeEdit

"Gold plated Combat Knife with Fast Melee. Unlocked at Prestige 5."
— Description

A patch on June 3rd, 2014 (June 4th, 2014 for some consoles) released a Gold Combat Knife. Players Prestige 5 will be able to access it immediately. It functions similarly like the Combat Knife from Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as it does not need to do the knifing animation. It is automatically unlocked in Private Match and Local Match along with the Gold PDW.

Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareEdit

The Combat Knife returns as a secondary weapon in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. There is no lunge on this iteration of the Combat Knife, making it considerably harder to use compared to its past incarnations. The knife drips blood after a kill. If the player crouches in the Swimming Pool on the map Retreat, they will not be able to use a gun, and a combat knife will be equipped instead.

To equip the Combat Knife in multiplayer simply remove the player's primary or secondrary weapon depending on where the player wants it.

TriviaEdit

  • MWXA-08 is enscribed on the blade.
  • Like the Gold PDW, the Gold Combat Knife's name is shown in gold when the name is shown on the HUD when switching to it.
