A machete is a thick and long knife designed to hack through vegetation, although they make handy melee weapons in a pinch.


Broad machete

Gameplay articles:

This common variant of the machete was made before the Great War as opposed to makeshift ones that developed after it. They are a few feet in length, end in a tapered point, and have a handle made of either wood or rubber.

Machete gladius

Gameplay article:

The wide blade at the head with an indentation into the blade towards the hilt is designed to give more weight to the head of the blade, allowing for more momentum with slashes. Like a machete, it does bonus limb damage. It can be repaired with another machete gladius, or regular machetes.

Makeshift machete

Gameplay article:

This big, long, sharp blade is good for cleaving limbs off of the native Joshua trees or from an unlucky mutant. It appears as a wooden handle affixed with tape to a long, sharpened lawn mower blade, indicated by the serrated opposite ends on opposites sides and the hole in the middle of the blade.
