Sometimes, flinging a knife into the air in the vague hope it hits an enemy player is the best bet you’ve got.
Most of the time – probably 99% of the time for your average Call of Duty Modern Warfare player – that knife will plop to the ground, useless and lost.
For Reddit user TruceBrian, though, it ended perfectly.
As you can see in the video above, a knife yeeted into the air in a last-ditch attempt to win the round fell with almost divine precision, falling right down onto an enemy that was lining up to shoot.
Better yet, the impeccable arc of the knife not only secured TruceBrian a kill – it won the CoD player the whole match. Beautiful.
Granted, it looks like this feat happens in a Gun Game lobby populated by bots, but it’s still an incredibly slick performance.
If you’re eager to get this kind of physics-defying kill yourself in Call of Duty Modern Warfare, it’s probably better to practice with Tomahawks; they’re easier to retrieve and you can better track their arc when they fly through the air. This will allow you to improve your future throws.
You’re still going to need a good dose of patience, luck, and skill if you want to pull something like this off, though.
