Is Cutthroat Worth It?

Upgrade Priority (Ranking) B Rank Icon
Reason While this could ensure a very high damaging single-shot attack, you lose whatever Knife you throw making this attack style very expensive.

Perk Tier List

High-Powered But Expensive

Knives, like most blades, have high damage potential. With this perk and a combination of other perks such as Venomous Fangs, throwing them will deal more damage than ever.

However, whatever Knife is thrown, it will be permanently lost. You will have to buy one more or find more in other locations. Plus, each knife will occupy a slot in your backpack thus increasing your total carrying weight which can be used for something else.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

      Ran into the same problem with Iris not wanting to get in the van (in v1.31) but coerced her into doing it by backing the van up into her. She'll jump out of the way if you try to ram her, but backing up and bumping her teleports her to the side of the van, where she'll get in.
