It may seem like an utilitarian tool but if this blade can cut through the tough-bastard vacuum-sealed plastic of packing crates it can deal with whatever the cops might wrap themselves in.

The Utility Knife is a melee weapon available in PAYDAY 2, added with the release of Bodhi and his eponymous character pack.


The Utility Knife moderately weak weapon damage-wise and knockdown-wise, charged or not, though it also has a fairly high swinging rate and concealment, making it a decent stealth melee.


  • Players deal more damage per second with this weapon by attacking as quickly as possible, rather than fully charging attacks.
  • If a player wishes for more damage, it is recommended that they get Berserker, Pumping Iron and Bloodthirst Aced from the Brawler skill tree.
  • If a player wishes for more knockdown, use Martial Arts Aced.


  • Similar to the Telescopic Baton, the sound of the blade extending can be heard when the weapon is swung.
