The Brass Knuckles are a blunt melee weapon featured in Dead Island. Brass Knuckles are worn on the fists, and can be found in lootable containers (metal chests, etc.) as well as merchant inventories throughout the game.
They are an effective weapon when utilized by Sam B, whose Fury abilities specialize in hand-to-hand combat and the use of Brass Knuckles. Similarly, because Sam B's Combat Skill Tree is focused on Blunt Weapons, Brass Knuckles are a very functional (albeit unorthodox, and potentially more dangerous given the close range necessary) option when playing as him.

- Brass Knuckles are very easy to find in Moresby.
- They have very low stamina consumption and inflict medium damage.
- The Exotic Brass Knuckles are extremely rare and hard to come by. Therefore, it's not very often the players will get to use the Juggernaut Gauntlets Mod.
- Despite the user having a hand-to-hand combat slot, brass knuckles are considered a separate weapon and will always take up an additional combat slot.
