Containing or relating to short stabbing implements
A person suffering from an inability to use anything other than close range puncturing implements in a game/combat environment.
In most cases going out of their way to make sure the target dies from a melee attack regardless of range, even if the sufferer has a suitable long range weapon.
Usually at the risk of team-mates and the sufferers own life, time and time again they will throw themselves head-first into a group of enemies in an attempt to quench their thirst for blood.
It is only then that the Shankaholic, feels truly alive.
Shankaholic's are generally found at the center of a "Shankfest"
Shankaholics also frequently suffer from a "Shankgasm" before, during and after the act of shanking.
"Seriously, don't play with him.. all he ever does is talk about stabbing people, he could have totally saved our team by shooting that guy.. but instead he had to run half-way across the map just to stab him -_- I mean come on... guy's a total Shankaholic"
Following quote taken from:
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
"Soap: Yeah, little bit of pain never hurt anybody. If you know what I mean. Also, I think knives are a good idea. Big, fuck-off shiny ones. Ones that look like they could skin a crocodile. Knives are good, because they don't make any noise, and the less noise they make, the more likely we are to use them. Shit 'em right up. Makes it look like we're serious. Guns for show, knives for a pro."
Soap is a closet Shankaholic.
Crocodile Dundee is also a passive Shankaholic, I mean come on.. that was one freakin' awesome knife, you totally knew he wanted to shank that guy.
