"This standard issue combat knife is very deadly when used in hand-to-hand combat. Many soldiers have survived thanks to quick thinking and fast reflexes when they found themselves suddenly out of ammunition."

— In-game description

The Knife is an all kit melee weapon featured in Battlefield 2. Unlike previous games, the knife's model does not change between factions, and it can now kill in one hit. Offsetting its power is the fact that the player must be very close to the target for the attack to connect. As a result, the knife works best against unaware and stationary enemies, as mobile ones can be a challenge to deal with, especially if they have a ranged weapon drawn.


3D Modelling[]


  • Bots will draw the knife and attempt to stab the player if they get too close, and won't pull out another weapon until the player is dead or a significant distance away.
  • In the files of Special Forces, there is an unused selection icon labelled spec_knife, along with a HUD icon for when the weapon is unlocked. However, even in Special Forces, the same icon from the base game is used, and the base game's knife does not have an unlock icon.
