"Flip-action lethal blade that can be armed and concealed quickly."
— Weapon description


The Butterfly Knife is only obtainable through Supply Drops as a Legendary drop. It is statistically identical to the Combat Knife, only bearing aesthetic differences. Similar to the Combat Knife, pressing the 'reload' button while holding the Butterfly Knife will trigger a weapon inspection animation in which the player character flips the knife around.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare & Warzone[edit | edit source]
