Bugs[edit | edit source]
- PC Playstation 3 Xbox 360 This weapon appears mostly identical to the standard knife spear, notably the knives themselves, which do not appear to be clean. This is caused by the special, "clean" texture for the weapon only being applied to the staff portion of the weapon and not the blade portion. [verified]
- PC Playstation 3 Xbox 360 The knife spear clean is marked as a "player only" weapon, meaning it cannot be given to companions for use. [verified]
