The Survival Knife[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. A standard weapon used by GUN foot soldiers, it is a close combat-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.


The Survival Knife is a very short, steel knife with a black hilt.


In gameplay, the Survival Knives can only be found in certain Stages, like the The Doom and Westopolis. They can be wielded by GUN Soldiers who will use them with proficiency against the player, so care of them.

Survival Knives can be dropped by defeated enemies that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) makes him attack with them. As a close combat weapon, the Survival Knife is designed for face-to-face combat. By comparison, it has a short attack range and does not deal much damage, making it one of the worst weapons in the game. A Survival Knife can swung a total of six times and once those tries are spent, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six attacks by picking up another Survival Knife.
