— 'Scout throwing kitchenware at enemies

The Flying Guillotine is a secondary weapon for the Scout. It appears as a meat cleaver with Chinese characters (死肉 lit. dead meat) on the blade, near the grip.

It is a ranged weapon that can be thrown at enemies to damage them, causing bleed damage, but it has no effect against buildings or after the hit of a surface. Throwing the weapon from a long enough distance and scoring a hit will result in a mini-crit. Hitting enemies that are stunned will result in a guaranteed critical hit. This projectile can be reflected by the Compression Blast, but trying to pick it up won't refill the cooldown bar and/or make it ready to use again.

The Flying Guillotine has two different styles, Thirsty and Thirstier. Thirstier adds bloodstains to the blade of the weapon.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Sleeping Dogs on Steam before August 14, 2012.

Update history

August 2, 2012 Patch

  • The Flying Guillotine was added to the game.

August 3, 2012 Patch


  • This item's level does not show up in the backpack or loadout.
  • Flying Guillotines in Genuine quality cannot be used in Medieval mode. This is because the promotional item has a different item entry from the crafted ones, and only the latter was whitelisted.


  • If the characters on the blade are pronounced in Mandarin Chinese, they'll sound similar to the word "throw" in English.
  • The Flying guillotine is a ranged weapon from the Qing Dynasty that is usually in the form of a hat.
