The throwing knife spear is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.


The throwing knife spear is similar in shape and design to the knife spear, except it has only one cosmic knife aerodynamically tied to the end of it. This makes it possible to throw the makeshift weapon far and with great velocity. These spears are the signature ranged weapon of the ghost harvesters that roam the villa.

Throwing knife spears can be used to repair both knife spears and knife spears clean. Owing to the thrown weapon's high health, as well as normally being found in perfect condition, this will repair either of the melee weapons to perfect condition.


They are plentiful in the villa. They are carried by ghost harvesters who use them as their main weapon. Each ghost harvester yields 5 of them upon death.


  • When thrown in a first person view outside the Sierra Madre, the spear will have a trail of the cloud. This is possibly because of its exposure to the cloud.
