Attack miss sound
Wall impact sound
- In older versions, Skull-9 dealt lower damage and it was as heavy as an AWP.
- There is a bug with Skull-9 where the player slashes and quickly switches to another weapon, the kill icon will eventually become the weapon that the player switched to. If the attack misses, your weapon will do any random animation.
- Use the bug and combine with different weapons will give different attack boost or knockback boost to the victim. M79 and Double / Triple Barrel can knock zombies far away. PowerSaw, Thunderbolt, Drill, Spear and AS50 can do tremendous damage (can kill more than 1 zombie) if Deadly Shot is also activated in the bug-hit. However, be noted that using Deadly Shot while performing Skull-9 bug can result in permanent ban by the Game Masters.
- With the useful bug-hit, this weapon is a great tool to upgrade guns without using any ammo at all in Scenario modes.
- Skull-9 is the first melee weapon that deals the same damage in both its primary and secondary attacks after Green Dragon Glaive.
- This is one of the few melee weapons that can be combined with Deadly Shot. The other ones are Green Dragon Glaive, Hammer and Wakizashi. Be noted that you can be banned for permanent if you are caught doing so.
- There is a bug where the primary attack animation freezes for some seconds if the user has high ping. It also happens on the secondary attack of the Green Dragon Glaive.
- This is the first special weapon where the original version is not available in game.
- Skull-9 and Skull-11 are the only weapons in the Skull series that cannot penetrate objects.
