The Combat Knife is a type of melee weapon featured in Gears of War 4. It allows its user to perform a close quarter combat attack after grabbing or kicking an enemy from behind cover. The melee attack will vary depending on where the player is situated in relation to the stunned enemy. In multiplayer, the knife's appearance varies in accordance with the player's faction.
- Gears of War 4 (First appearance)
- The Combat Knife being able to harm members of the Swarm is rather unusual, as the knife bayonets of the Retro Lancers were useless on the Swarm's predecessors (due to their thick skin). Therefore, in order for the Combat Knife to harm the Swarm, either its blade must be made of a denser material, or the Swarm has less thick skin in comparison to the Locust.
