The Tomahawk is a new weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It is similar to the Throwing Knife, for it also has a one-hit-kill ability and it has a similar reticle. The Tomahawk's cross-hair is circular with two lines coming out of it. The Tomahawk appears to travel in a much straighter line, meaning the player does not need to compensate for gravity as much as in Modern Warfare 2.
In Multiplayer, the Tomahawk takes up the lethal grenade slot. It is heavier than the Throwing Knife in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, meaning it will drop a lot quicker than the Throwing Knife, but because is has more weight on the head it can actually be thrown farther than a throwing knife.
