The 'Bowie Knife' is a large combat knife first popularised during the 19th Century. Bowie Knives have a blade with a length of around 12" or more. Bowie Knives are, ironically, illegal in the state of Texas: where they were first popularised. In Texas, the bowie knife is classified as an 'illegal knife'.
The Bowie Knife appears only in the Nazi Zombies mode. It appears only in Der Riese, and is visibly much larger than the standard combat knife. The Bowie Knife costs 3000 Points, but also has a vast increase in damage. It becomes a one-hit-kill from Rounds 1 to 11, meaning that it can be a relatively effective weapon even in later levels. The Bowie Knife cannot be lost - even if the player is downed or dies, it will still be in their possession upon respawning or being revived.
The Bowie Knife available in Black Ops is slightly different to the version displayed in World at War. Again, it is exclusive to the Zombies mode, and visually looks almost identical. It costs 3000 Points, but is even more effective, as it can be combined with the Ballistic Knife in order to become even more effective. The Bowie Knife appears in both of the 'core' maps of Black Ops: " Five", and Kino der Untoten.
