The Knife of Counter-Striking is a finely crafted combat knife. Though, oddly, is it better at getting out of fights rather than into them.

–In-game description.

The Knife of Counter-Striking is a weapon featured in Magicka. It can be found during Chapter 5: Hávindr Strikes Back within the Orc Stronghold. Though it does low damage (98-196), it provides a passive Haste effect, permanently increasing the wielder's speed.


  • The knife is a reference to Counter-Strike, the first-person shooter video game developed in 2000 initially as a mod to Half-Life. In Counter-Strike, players move faster with their knife drawn.
