I've just started playing FarCry 4, and have picked up some throwing knives and an assault rifle.

When I initially picked up the knives, I think a tutorial displayed briefly on the bottom of the screen, but I was in the middle of a gun fight and wasn't able to see what it said.

I've been trying to figure out how to use the throwing knives, but can't find anything about them in the game's help. I see that I have access to a weapon wheel by pressing L1, however when I select the knives the assault rifle remains equipped.

That makes me think that both weapons can be active at the same time, so how do I actually throw a knife?

  • Have you tried looking for a controller layout or keybind settings ingame?

Use R1 to throw a knife after selecting it from the L1 wheel.

    To add a little more, you always have a weapon and a thrown object selected separately. One button will fire your primary weapon which is visible in your hands while another will throw whatever you have selected: knives, bait, grenade, etc. Nov 20, 2014 at 7:33

    For PC users, throwing knives function as all throwables (eg. grenades). Equip with mouse wheel or numbers. Middle click (maybe even G) to throw.
