The '''Combat Knife''' is a melee weapon featured in ''Half-Life Opposing Force'' and used by Adrian Shephard. It can be found plunged into the back of a dead Vortigaunt in a cave, and later in an office before reaching the Sector F|Lambda Complex. Its appearance is similar to that of the classic wikipediaKA-BAR|KA-BAR knife.

==Overview==

*A step up from the Pipe Wrench, the knife does less damage per hit and has no secondary attack, but has a considerably faster rate of attack. 

*The knife is best used for conserving ammo while fighting weakened enemies and breaking open supply crates. 

*Its speed is identical to the Crowbar, but it deals twice as much damage, and can sometimes instantly kill humans from behind and instantly kill Headcrabs when they attack.

==Behind the scenes==
A combat knife can also be seen attached on the Human Sergeant's belt, although it is only part of his textures.
