"The Black Bear Indians believed that the knife possessed the power of a sly, yet ferocious, animal..."
—Roland Kane, on the P23

The ORO P23 Combat Knife is one of the most widely used weapons in Turok.

All members of Whiskey Company and Wolf Pack carry them on their armor suits, as do the MG Soldiers.

AppearanceEdit

The Combat Knife features a sleek and shiny blade alongside a matte black handle. The blade is silver, and it features multiple serrations and grooves, while the handle sports a hilt and grip indents for the player to hold the knife.

GameplayEdit

CampaignEdit

The Knife is arguably the most effective weapon in the game. It can take down all but the most powerful enemies in a quick animation. All types of dinosaurs up to the Dilophosaurus in terms of size are able to be taken out with one quick button press. Any MG Soldiers can also be killed in this fashion as long as they are not heavy units (units with ESUS Hellfire Flamethrowers or ORO War Horse Chainguns).

This weapon has a secondary attack which, when activated, will cause the player to move the knife in a "swiping" motion compared to the default "stabbing" motion. This weapon, however, is useless when the enemy is outside its range, so using this weapon in the vast jungles is a bad idea.

MG Soldiers also possess this weapon, though they will not use it to the extent that the player does. Instead, they only use it to fend off Utahraptor mauls, which they inevitably lose.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, all players start out with this weapon. It has the same abilities and effects as in the single-player campaign, and the player can run faster with the weapon.

This weapon loses some of its effectiveness in multiplayer, and ironically, its best assets are its downfall. When the player knife kills an enemy, be it human or saurian, they are static and caught in the animation, meaning they cannot escape gunfire or other things. However, if the player can use it like it should be used, as a stealth weapon, then it can easily be the most effective weapon.

This can be accomplished by hiding in places like bushes, or around corners, only to rush out and bring the blade down on an enemy's head.

Alternate Fire: Knife SlashEdit

The secondary function of the knife is unarguably the most ineffective out of all of the weapons. It involves the player swiping the knife in a sideways "slashing" motion.

This attack is very ineffective against most, if not all, enemies types; however, it can stun Utahraptors and MG soldiers alike. This should be used only if all other weapons are exhausted of their ammo, or if the player thinks they are not safe performing a normal knife kill, as it is quicker than the former.

Achievements/TrophiesEdit

Man or AnimalEdit

This is earned by killing 100 MG soldiers with the knife's primary ability. This will most likely be earned on the player's first playthrough, especially when inside MG bases.

Dino DominanceEdit

This is earned much like "Man or Animal". The player just needs to kill 50 creatures (ex. Utahraptors, Mini-Raptors, and Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rexes) with the knife. This will be earned relatively quickly in the campaign.

TriviaEdit

  • The P23 bears a striking resemblance to the KA-BAR 1221N2K USMC Next Generation Fighting Knife.[1]
