- "Lethal melee weapon. Apply to opponents face; repeat."
- — In-game description
The Prizefighters are a melee weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. They are a pair of boxing gloves the player can use on each hand, similar to the Brass Knuckles. The weapon was released for everyone for free on August 31st, 2016, upon the entire Call of Duty community completing the "Road to Champs" community contract by playing a total of 350,000,000 matches before September 2nd, 2016.
Unlike the Combat Knife, right-clicking with the Prizefighters will throw a right hook instead of performing some sort of guard. This means the player can attack with either their primary fire, secondary fire or melee key. Using primary fire will throw a left double-jab.
- Upon loading into a match, the player will perform a knocking gesture with the left glove accompanied by the sound of a bell similar to the start of a boxing match if the Prizefighters are equipped without a primary weapon.
