|For an overview of combat knifes in all games, see combat knife.|
|The following is based on Fallout Tactics and is not canon.|
The combat knife is a bladed weapon meant for survival and combat purposes. Unlike the knife, this weapon is made for fighting.
It does a decent amount of damage early on, and is useful when you need to slice multiple times per attack.
Behind the scenes
The name of the combat knife in the description of Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics is a reference to Sylvester Stallone's role in the Rambo series, where he plays an army veteran using a combat knife as a main weapon.
