Values listed in brackets are for alternate (secondary) fire.
The weakest of the trader-bought weapons, the machete can be considered an upgrade from the basic knife, dealing over 300% the damage and weighing only a single block. Secondary fire deals over twice the damage than that of the knife, and swings at the same rate.
While it is not very powerful compared to other melee weapons, the fact that it costs only £100 and weighs only a single block means that it fits into most loadouts, and doesn't have a big impact on budget.
As with all melee weapons it has the ability to back-stab for double damage, to which the head multiplier is then applied.
- Time your swings carefully and aim for the head. Weaker specimens can often be decapitated this way.
