The Throwing Knife is a unique thrown weapon used by The Bodyguard. An aesthetically unique but functionally identical throwing knife type is used by Biker, who can deploy them at any time without dropping his cleaver. It appears in Hotline Miami and in the Level Editor for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.
In Hotline Miami, the Throwing Knife can be found in Showdown, where they are dropped by The Bodyguard after Jacket kills her. They are used to maim and disarm The Father, the game's final boss. This is the only time Jacket ever uses throwing knives.
Biker can start any of his levels with three throwing knives that can be used as his only form of ranged attacks. If they are thrown at a wall, they will get stuck and can be taken back out again just like how Biker fights Jacket in Neighbors.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
A new throwing knife icon reveals Biker's throwing knives to be black shards with pink tassels, similar to the color layout of his bed and bathroom in Fun & Games, Prank Call, and Resolution in the original game.
