The Glass Shard is also the only execution weapon that players can create by themselves. If a glass object is destroyed, particularly windows, it leaves behind a Glass Shard for use by the player. This occurs in Manhunt and Manhunt 2.
It appears in the Manhunt missions Born Again, Doorway into Hell, Grounds for Assault, Strapped for Cash, View of Innocence, Drunk Driving, Mouth of Madness, Kill the Rabbit, Press Coverage, Border Patrol, Deliverance, Brawl Game, Monkey See, Monkey Die and Time 2 Die and appears in the Manhunt 2 missions Awakening, Sexual Deviants, Red Light, Bees Honey Pot, Assassination, Most Wanted, Ritual Cleansing (PC/Wii), Origins, Broadcast Interrupted and Altered State.
