Is your movement speed with the knife the same as with other melee weapons such as the machete, fire axe, and katana (chainsaw makes you move slow)? Or does the knife, when equipped, have the absolute fastest movement speed?

Thanks in advance.

Okay, thanks, that means I should always run with the knife even if I have a more effective weapon like the Katana.

Ehhhh.... That is a tough call. For me, personally, when I am berserker (currently level 5), I will keep my katana out when I am running. The only reason being that its movement speed penalty is quite small when compared to the knife and with it out, you are generally more safe from attack and more effective when combating something else.

However, if I am very far away (100+M) from the trader and the count-down has started I will take out my knife and jump the way. You can get moving pretty well :P

Well, when running to the trader I always have my knife out. But I never knew that jumping was faster for movement?

It may or may not be. I've never been left behind by someone who was same perk/weight as me when I was doing it. I think it is very SLIGHTLY faster. Like, really minimal.

Hmm, okay. Might be worth a try, then. :)
