Space Staition (Survival) 2

Combat Knife in use

The Combat Knife is a default Melee weapon. This weapon is automatically given when you first start the game.


It is a standard combat knife, with a black handle and a metal blade with a serrated edge.


It has low damage, good mobility, and fast attack speed.


  • If you are in level 7+, this weapon performs poorly delivering in minimal to no kills in matches. However its mobility is decent so use it if you don't have a better option in terms of mobility in melee section.
  • As a low level player, never try to use this gun in long range as it is ineffective. Only use this if you are in extremely close range. You should use this for traveling across the map as it have better mobility than other starter weapons.
  • Use this as a substitute to flamethrower (if it ran out of shots)


  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Its damage is extremely noticeable especially if you have armor. Take note of the damage indicators to know where is the attacker is. 
  • When engaged in close range combat with a user of this weapon, use a close ranged weapon or an area damage weapon to finish them off.
  • You should have no problem if you are high leveled player as this weapon is extremely weak against armor.



Supported maps

  • Knife Party (only in low levels)
  • Deadly Games (if you don't have a gun, or have low range counters, as this weapon is actually decent in this gamemode)

Weapon Setups

Try to replace the combat knife as your melee asap as it is very underpowered against armored players with decent weapons.


  • There is a giant combat knife in the Ant's Life, sticking out of a watermelon.
  • There is a small combat knife sticking out the side of the Combat Rifle Up2 and its processor.
  • This weapon has gained quite a reputation for easily killing people in the Deadly Games mode. At the very start, people are able to reach those whom stand right next to them and kill them off as the round starts.
    • While it is an efficient way to end a match quicker and for gaining easy kills, this has caused quite a negative reaction from the people who play the game, as they never had a chance to actually fight.
      • As a result, people now have a period in the beginning of where they take no damage, so they actually fight back after getting a gun.
