The Throwing Knives Mk.1 were released on June 6th, 2012 and can be used as a melee weapon or thrown. Thrown throwing knives can hit enemy players in head, should this happen the enemy player will take double damage reduced by their Headshot Armor Protection.
When thrown they follow a parabolic trajectory and before throwing there is a short animation in which your character readies it. While in this stance, you will be unable to use your HRV but can still run.
If you miss your target, the Throwing Knives Mk.1 can be picked up by simply walking over them.
This weapon has two different attacks:
Default mouse 1: Pressing mouse 1 will cause the player to ready a throwing knife then throw it. Mouse 1 can be held down to keep a throwing knife readied, when mouse 1 is released the player will throw the knife.
Default mouse 2: Pressing mouse 2 will cause the player to make a slashing motion. Any enemy players within 2.0m will take 200 damage.
