Knives are melee weapons in Xenoblade Chronicles X. In the beginning of the game, this is the initial melee weapon Cross can use as a Drifter. Knives are retained when changing to Enforcer, and can be further mastered through Psycorruptor and Mastermind classes. Knives are also the melee weapons used by Irina, Celica, Hope, and Mia.
