Ring the death knell. Headshots briefly turn this scoped pistol into a rapid-fire, Critical Damage fiend that uses no ammo.

The Knell is Harrow's signature pistol that ultilizes its scope to more accurately land shots at long range. Although its magazine can only hold 1 round, any part of the body that is shot will grant it infinite ammunition for a short duration, making it a "high risk, high reward" weapon.

This weapon primarily deals Puncture b Puncture and Impact b Impact damage.


  • High Puncture b Puncture damage and comparatively high Impact b Impact damage – effective against armor and shields.
  • Successful hits will trigger the Death Knell buff, granting unlimited ammo for 2 seconds.
    • Stacks up to three times and can be refreshed on consecutive hits.
  • Good fire rate.
  • Very high reload speed.
  • Precise at long range due to the scope feature.


  • Low Slash b Slash damage – less effective against health.
  • Extremely low ammunition pool of only five rounds.
  • Can only load one shot at a time.
    • Impractical to use mods that increase pistol magazine size.


  • Upon hits, the pistol gets the 2-second Death Knell buff which allows it to consume no ammo while firing, bypassing the need to reload.
    • Stacks up to three times on consecutive hits with each stack having its own duration.
    • As an indication that this buff is active, the scope design while zoomed in will evolve, as well as showing the Death Knell buff in the UI.


  • A knell is the sound made by a bell, specifically when rung to signify a death or a funeral.
  • When viewed from overhead Knell resembles a cross, possibly in reference to Harrow's priest/exorcist theme.
  • There is Tennobet engraved at the bottom of Knell's handle. This translates to "KUHT", which could mean "Cut".


  • Knell in Codex.
