A Throwing Knife is a specially designed Knife that is intended specifically for being thrown at a target. They are generally made out of single piece of material, usually steel, and weighted to be balanced during flight. Throwing Knives are generally ineffective combat weapons, as the knife will probably be unrecoverable after if it is thrown during a combat situation, and mostly used as novelty or sporting items.
The Commando Knife and the German Elite Knife are weapons featured in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII expansion and are issued to the Special Air Service and to the Waffen-SS respectively, replacing the default combat knife when playing in the expansion.
They function identical to the default knife and share the same stats but by pressing the primary fire key, the knives can be thrown or used as a melee weapon with the secondary fire key. Each kit comes with five knives.

The subject of this article, Commando Knife, has been cut from the final version of Battlefield Vietnam.
The Commando knife is a weapon which was cut from Battlefield Vietnam early in development. It shares the same model as the standard U.S./ARVN combat knife, but is held with the blade upwards rather than downwards.
Its animations seem to be identical to that of the combat knife in Battlefield 1942; however, its damage system files indicate that it was originally intended to be used like the throwing knife from the Secret Weapons of WWII expansion for Battlefield 1942 rather than as a close-quarters weapon.
The Throwing Knife is an all kit weapon introduced in the Battlefield Hardline: Robbery expansion.
Unlike other blades featured in Hardline, the Throwing Knife fills the Grenade slot instead of the melee slot, and is thrown as a projectile. While it has an extremely limited range, it will kill in one hit, making it ideal in close quarters situations.
The Gold throwing knife is unlocked upon completion of the Rubber Arm Syndicate assignment. Upon obtaining 25 kills with the throwing knife, the "That's Not a Knife" achievement/trophy will be unlocked.
