Kunai throwing daggers offer a silent alternative to the traditional sidearm. Perfect for assassins.
Kunai is a throwing weapon for the secondary slot, released in Update 8. It has a significant amount of DPS, but can be hard to aim with because of its arrow-like arc projection.
This weapon can be sold for
5,000; it is also a requisite ingredient for Tipedo.

Weapon Loadouts Edit
Make sure to adjust your aim for moving targets.
When using at a distance, aim above the enemy to adjust for the arc of the blades.
Using the Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.
The Kunai's throwing arc means you can sometimes aim at targets behind cover. Aiming slightly above the cover will result in the Kunai curving downwards onto the enemies.
Note that this is extremely situational, as enemy cover is usually too high to take advantage of this.
The Kunai does not have the pinning properties of other projectile weapons, such as the Boltor or Paris, but will simply throw targets backwards upon death.
The Kunai (苦無) were traditionally a multipurpose tool, similar in design to a crowbar or trowel. It could be used for gardening, masonry, and other things. Popular culture has since associated the kunai with ninjas.
The Despair and Hikou share similarities to the Kunai, they are all thrown secondaries that deal mostly Puncture damage.
Update 16.7 revealed the Kunai to be a themed-weapon based off the Paris, in the same manner that other themed-weapons like the AkJagara, Aksomati, and Bolto are related to the Tigris, Soma, and Boltor respectively.
