"Lethal blade weapon. Used for sacrificial rituals and liberating interlopers from existence."
— In-game description
The Malice was added to multiplayer in the March 21, 2016 update, where it can only be acquired through Supply Drops. It can be acquired in Gorod Krovi by completing the time trial in which the player has to finish 10 rounds in under 13 minutes. The weapon can then be picked up from the bulletin board inside the operations bunker.
When the Malice is flourished (by pressing 'reload'), it emits a humming sound audible to nearby players.
The Malice is available in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, referred to as Willard's Dagger. It is first seen in the intro cutscene for "Zombies in Spaceland", where Willard Wyler commits his ritual to trap the main characters. When playing as Wyler after completing the super easter egg, the dagger is his starting weapon.
