Call of Duty: Warzone has a ton of different firearms for players to use. But sometimes you may want to use something a little more discrete for close-quarters combat. That’s where having a melee weapon like a knife can come in incredibly handy. Here’s how to use the knife in Warzone.
Knives in Warzone
First off, it’s worth noting that your usual melee attack in Warzone will just use the butt of your weapon to hit your target. This can be done by pressing in the right analog stick (or pressing R3).
If you want to specifically want to use a knife for your stealthy attack, though, you’ll need to unlock one first.
How to Unlock a Knife in Warzone
You’ll unlock the Combat Knife once you reach level 22. You may be able to purchase and unlock more melee weapons and knives in the future, but for now, this and the Riot Shield (unlocked at the same level) are the only ones for now.
Once you’ve unlocked the knife, you’ll need to equip it to your loadout. To do this, select one of your Custom Loadout slots and select the Secondary Weapon option.
Go to ‘Melee’ and you’ll find the Combat Knife underneath it. Press A to confirm this as your secondary weapon. Now you’re ready to get stabby with it in Warzone.
Using a Knife in Warzone
To use a knife in Warzone, you’ll now need to call in your Loadout Drop. This can either be done by buying a drop from a Buy Station for $10,000, or by visiting one of the random ones that drop for free during the match.
Select the loadout that has the Combat Knife as your secondary weapon. Now switch to your secondary weapon (Y on Xbox, Triangle on PS4) and you’ll equip it. Press RT on Xbox or R2 on PS4 to use your knife in Warzone, as you would any other weapon.
