  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Bleed Propagation
      • "If the victim dies from bleed damage, surrounding enemies begin to bleed as well."

Notes[]

  • The attack rate of this weapon allows it to easily trigger the burst bleed effect, and deal lots of damage very quickly if you can manage to inflict 5 stacks of bleed.
  • Due to its high attack speed, it can be used very quickly before switching to your main damage dealing weapon, allowing for good set-ups with bleed synergies.
  • The Throwing Knife is very effective against flying enemies, due it being able to automatically target enemies directly above the player.
  • Affixes such as "+80% damage on poisoned targets" apply to the projectile damage as well as the bleed status inflicted by it.

Trivia[]

  • The Throwing Knife is based off of a kunai.
