–In-game description


The Hunting Knife is a One Hand Blade. It is currently unlocked via exclusive case unlock.

History

Hunting knives are simple knives with a slightly misleading name. Hunting knives are not intended for the purpose of killing a game animal - rather, it is intended for the purpose of preparing the game animal for consumption by a human. This means that the hunting knife is intended for skinning the animal and cutting up the meat. The blade's design inherently makes it poor for stabbing, but much better for cutting. Most hunting knives curve the tip to avoid damaging the skin of an animal when it is being cut.

The hunting knife in Phantom Forces is based on the knife used by the antagonist Ghostface in the movie Scream, which is a Buck 120. The Buck 120 features a clip point blade, which allows the knife to make a deeper puncture more easily.
