Usage & Description

The Psycho Stabber is more useful as a melee weapon with its high melee damage bonus. As a gun, it is an ineffective option with its weak damage and limited projectile range.


  • The +120% melee damage comes from two separate melee accessories which grant +80% and +40% melee damage. These accessories can spawn on other COV pistols for the same melee bonus.


  • The source, name, and special effect of the weapon are a reference to the 1960 film Psycho.
  • The flavor text is a reference to the song Psycho Killer by Talking Heads.
