The cosmic knife super-heated can successfully strike about 745 times from full condition before breaking.
This weapon must be crafted by the player. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.

The weapon has a very high critical multiplier of x5, this fact alone makes the Cosmic knife super-heated a very powerful weapon; a player with a critical chance of 20 or higher would score a critical strike on every hit. This can be achieved very early by having Finesse, 10 Luck, and the 1st Recon beret.
Behind the scenes
Shape and texture resources for the cosmic knife, its clean, and super-heated variant are all present in the files of Old World Blues add-on, but not used. Though present, no objects in the add-on use these resources. Curiously the resources are stored within the nvdlc01 folder used by the Dead Money add-on, rather than the nvdlc03 folder allocated to Old World Blues.

- Has platform::PC Has platform::Playstation 3 Has platform::Xbox 360 The glow layer texture for this weapon is referenced by the weapon's model, but was not included in the resources for Dead Money. This indicates the weapon was intended to produce a glow from only certain parts of the knife, but instead provides a glow over the entire weapon due to the missing texture. [已核实]
