† The data files for monsters that appear only in the registered version of Quake reside in pak1.pak rather than pak0.pak.

Knights have a sharp sword and strong arms, but their drawback is their lack of a ranged attack. Two good spanks from the Double-Barrelled Shotgun will work (or, more efficiently, a Shotgun blast immediately followed by a double-barrelled shot).
