—Game Description
The Knife is a melee weapon in Dead Trigger 2.


The Knife is the second melee weapon to be unlocked. Its blueprint is revealed at Tech level 2, and it requires Gunsmith level 3 to be built.

Summary Edit

The Knife does strong damage against Zombies at early levels, taking as little as 2 hits to take one down. The knife is easy to unlock, as it takes two blueprints to unlock and once it requires a level 3 Gunsmith to build it. The Knife can be used effectively when paired with a medium to long range weapon. With its high attack rate the Knife can be used almost as a "primary" weapon against all normal zombies but is ineffective against special zombies because of its low range compared to all other melee weapons. The knife retains its value throughout the game until about level 40.

Trivia Edit

  • Beta footage of Dead Trigger 2 showed the knife clean.
  • Tapping reload then immediately switching to the knife will make the player's index finger stick out. This is purely visual and does not affect gameplay.
  • When switching to the Knife, Kyle spins it in his hands.
