Kunai throwing daggers offer a silent alternative to the traditional sidearm. Perfect for assassins.

The Kunai is a throwing weapon for the secondary slot, released in Update 8.0. It deals a significant amount of damage, but can be hard to aim with because of its arrow-like arc projection.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 5,000; it is also a requisite ingredient for Tipedo.

Advantages:

  • Silent.
  • Can hit multiple enemies in a short line (caused by flying dead bodies and not by the Kunai).
  • Very fast reload speed.

  • Can be 'fired' automatically.
  • The arc of the shots enable headshots over cover.
  • Two Madurai Pol polarity slots, ideal for Hornet Strike and Barrel Diffusion.
  • Can use the Kunai-exclusive Stockpiled Blight Augment mod.

Disadvantages:

  • Has travel time, making it difficult to land an accurate shot at long distances.
  • Shoots in an arc, making it difficult for use at long range.
  • Low critical chance.
  • Low status chance.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • 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.

NotesEdit

  • 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.

TriviaEdit

  • 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 b 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.
