Effective hand-to-hand weapon, easily concealed from unattentive enemies. Makes for nasty surprise afterwards. — In-game description
Brass Knuckles is a type of blunt melee weapon in DayZ Standalone. Although they do little damage compared to other melee weapons, they are quite hard to see when equipped in a player's hands, making them extremely useful when you are being robbed or need to neutralize a player without killing them.
- Brass knuckles were popular with gangsters and street fighters during the 1920's.
- Brass Knuckles are also known as "poing américain" (French for Lit. American fist), "puño americano" (Spanish for American fist), "knogjärn" (Swedish for Knuckle iron) and "Nyrkkirauta" (Finnish for Fist iron) .
- Many combination weapons have been made featuring Brass Knuckles, Including the Infamous U.S 1918 Trench Knife and French "Apache" Revolvers.
