General Information[]

Throwing knives can be thrown a good distance, but is tough to aim outside of lock-on range. Throwing Knives can be a useful addition to the player's arsenal in the early game, but due to their low damage and lack of scaling they quickly lose viability. However, they can be used as a cheap way to aggro individual enemies, allowing the player to avoid fighting groups of dangerous enemies all at once.
