This up-close and personal weapon is exclusive to the Light Build. While it’s the fastest melee weapon in the game, its primary fire does not deal plenty of damage. Contrary to that, the Dagger’s great potential comes in the form of secondary fire. Holding secondary fire and releasing it while being behind your enemy will score you a critical hit. This means that the damage that is applied is enough to one-shot Light and Medium Builds. 

Unlike other melee weapons, to use the Dagger efficiently you will have to exploit perfect moments to strike. With the Dagger, you have to be very precise in how you position your strikes. Luckily, the Light Build has a Cloaking Device specialization that is the perfect combination with the Dagger.

In contrast to other weapons, Sword’s primary attack will quickly slash in front of you dealing moderate damage. In addition to this Sword’s primary attack can hit multiple opponents.
