Throw Poison Knife
Point blank - Short
The Combat Knife is a melee/thrown weapon in Perfect Dark. Its primary mode is a very effective close combat weapon that will usually take no more than 2 slashes to down an enemy. Also a hit from behind will kill any enemy, including Skedar if aimed at the tentacle-like part at the back of the head.
The secondary mode throws the knife, which does damage on impact and also poisons the enemy, doing damage over time in "waves". This also disorients the enemy, much like the tranquilizer or crossbow. While a foe can survive one thrown knife, two is enough for a sure kill.
Skillful users would definitely rule close quarters combat. By poisoning their targets before swiping at them. They can take out targets with sheer speed. This weakened state can carry over to the next spawn and another successful hit will point them, the way, back to the spawning point.
A large and vicious combat knife. It contains a vial of poison that shatters when thrown, giving a wounded enemy at most 6 seconds to live. A dataDyne weapon through and through.
