Scissors are a weapon in POSTAL 2.


The manual description:

The Scissors can be thrown at enemies who are in relatively close range. To be sure they have an effect, make sure to aim carefully, ‘cause they’re really small. You can also use the secondary fire option with this weapon, causing them to ricochet off of walls. This weapon is especially handy because the scissors can be retrieved if they stick in a wall. Be careful not to poke out your eye.

The Scissors are a type of thrown weapon. They can be thrown one by one rapidly with great accuracy and distance. The secondary attack makes the Scissors capable of bouncing off walls. In Share The Pain, the Scissors can be thrown much faster.

Enhanced Mode[]

When the Scissors are equipped, the player's running speed is three times as fast.


  • The use of Scissors as a weapon is a reference to the name of the developer, Running With Scissors.
    • Running 30 miles in-game (10874 Unreal Units = 1 mile) with the Scissors equipped will also unlock the achievement "Running with Scissors".
  • With Enhanced mode, the Machine Gun fires ricocheting Scissors as its alt-fire ammo.
