The K-Bar Knife is a close range knife/melee weapon that if used in the right hands can kill a lot of people quickly and quietly. It is carried by Maulers and Recons, though Maulers rarely use this weapon, while it is the weapon of choice for Recons. In a one on one melee battles, the K-Bar Knife is the ideal weapon to kill the opponent.
This weapon was formerly a one-hit kill weapon for all Medium Armor and Light Armor Unit Classes. This caused problems for that players could never stand a chance after a single attack from the knife. So, the knife has lowered its damage, though now it can hit an enemy three times per swing. One hit on a light armor unit can kill him/her, while two hits on a swing can kill a medium armored enemy. This allows medium armored units to have a chance to survive if they moved out of the knife swinging range just after one hit from it.
