Knives are sharp melee weapons featured in Dead Island. They have low range, low to medium damage, low durability but are extremely fast to swing. Because of this, a knife is best applied to kill some zombies in the way then throw it away and forget. Early in the game, knives can be found in the beach bars.
Xian Mei is the only character that can perform a special attack with knives. When playing as Logan Carter, knives are extremely useful, since the player can throw them causing high damage or giving them a special touch with the Sticky Bomb Mod.
