** The ''Dead Money'' DLC for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' introduces [[{{GasMaskMooks}} Ghost People]], whose WeaponOfChoice is the Knife Spear, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's a decent melee weapon for The Courier to use throughout the DLC, as ammunition is scarce and Ghost People must be dismembered to be permanently killed.
