  • They can commonly be found on ghost people, particularly harvesters and seekers.
  • One can be found in the area outside the Villa Police Station, impaling a skeleton by a fountain near the wide staircase leading to the station.

    • Enemy blood on the spear will be floating off of the surface.
    • The player's palm will be stretched out. This happens with the baseball bat but because the bat is bigger than the knife spear, it can not normally be seen.
  • Has platform::Xbox 360Xbox 360 The knife spear can, due to an unknown bug, disappear in the third person point of view, but reappear in the first person point of view. Although the knife spear disappears in the third person point of view, it can still be usable in combat as if the knife spear is still there active. (Reloading a previous save doesn't fix this issue, nor does dropping the knife spear (even though in third person point of view, it appears on the ground, it will disappear again when equipping it).
