A weapon used in hand-to-hand combat. Brass knuckles are pieces of metal shaped to fit around the knuckles. Designed to preserve and concentrate a punch's force by directing it toward a harder and smaller contact area, they result in increased tissue disruption, including an increased likelihood of fracturing the victim's bones on impact. — In-game description

Brass Knuckles are a type of blunt melee weapon in DayZ Standalone. Although they do little actual damage compared to blade weapons, it usually only takes one hit to the head to knock a player unconscious, even if they are wearing head protection. These only take up one slot in a player's inventory, and are quite hard to see when equipped in a player's hands, making them extremely useful when you are being robbed or need to neutralize a player without killing them.
