In the Separate Ways tab of the Extra Content Shop, you can purchase the Elite Knife for 1,000 CP. Once it is purchased, you can access the infinite combat knife during Separate Ways. The special melee weapon is unbreakable, negating the need for other knives in the DLC, and is particularly useful on higher difficulties, speed runs, or knife-only challenges in Separate Ways.
