Summary

The Karambit is a South-east Asian knife that has a curve, similar to a claw, used mainly for gutting fish and cutting up food, though you could use it for the same things, except against zombies.

This knife has the unique ability to climb walls, which can be useful for escaping certain death.

Background Story

As countries around the world fell one-by-one to the SANI Virus, it was normal to migrate to another location. When travelling, people like to bring a little bit of culture with them to keep it alive.

Discovered by R-Brain Hardwork scouts, a small foreign group was found toting these around. Not only were they used in battling the elements, they were also used in battling zombies and the occasional quick escape.

Information was relayed back to base, and the Karambit was prepared for mass distribution. Focus groups have noted that some survivors continuously spout their praise for an old video game while using this weapon.

Tips

  • The Karambit has the ability to allow the user to latch onto walls and climb them.
    • You can click and hold to perform this while facing a wall.
      • Repeatedly letting go and holding will automatically climb up the wall for you.
      • If you do not hold onto the wall correctly, you will take some unnecessary fall damage.
    • If you're running away from a horde, you can use this ability to get away quickly.
      • Keep an eye out for a Brute or an Edgar while climbing, as they can easily hit you.
    • You don't have infinite stamina, so don't expect it to be your saving grace.
      • There are bugs in the system that do disable stamina decay, but abusing these bugs in certain situations will get you forcibly reset by a Moderator.
    • You cannot climb on certain surfaces, such as windows.

Trivia

  • This is the second knife to be added to R2DA, with the first being the Rambo Knife.
  • Prior to v1.0.2, you had to be Rank 16 to unlock this knife for purchase.
  • In Debug, while the climbing ability was being worked on, you could throw the Karambit as a placeholder ability.
    • Since this ability was temporary, it was quite glitchy. Attempting to throw it while in this state would send you flying around the map.
    • As the climbing ability is now finalised, you can no longer throw the Karambit.
  • The Skins for the Karambit have been made by multiple people:
  • Fierce and Corsair are references to CS:GO's Fade and Lore respectively.
