The Prizefighters are a pair of boxing gloves available as a melee weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III[]

"Lethal melee weapon. Apply to opponents face; repeat."
— In-game description

The Prizefighters were released for everyone for free on August 31st, 2016, after the entire Call of Duty community completed the "Road to Champs" community contract by playing a total of 350,000,000 matches before September 2nd, 2016.

Unlike the Combat Knife, right-clicking with the Prizefighters will throw a right hook instead of performing some sort of guard. This means the player can attack with either their primary fire, secondary fire or melee key. Using primary fire will throw a left double-jab.


Call of Duty: Mobile[]

"A melee weapon that achieves a quick two-strike combo in a short period of time."
— Description

The Prizefighters return in Call of Duty: Mobile. They were added in September 2021 as part of the Season 7: Elite of the Elite update.

Initially, the Prizefighters appeared in the form of blueprints for the Base Melee. In November 2021, with the Season 10: Shadows Return update, the Prizefighters became a base weapon.


Compared to most melees, the Prizefighters have a unique trait, which is the ability to swing twice with one melee. These strikes can kill multiple people if an additional enemy is in close proximity. As such, it is quite effective at crowd control in smaller maps, where a single attack can eliminate several enemies. However, avoid jumping while using the melee, as it initiates a unique hammer blow attack which is much slower than the normal swings.

  • While wielding this, the character's arms appear to have sleeves, as if on a jacket. This is a reference to the popular boxing movie, Rocky.

  • When equipped as the starting weapon at the beginning of a match or picked up during a match, the player will perform a knocking gesture with the left glove accompanied by the sound of a bell similar to that of the start of a boxing match.
