The machete is one of three melee weapons. Unlike the Hatchet, it cannot be used to obtain wood.
The machete uses a primary weapon slot, and can be added to the tool slots when not in use.
The machete is a fairly uncommon loot drop, as it only spawns in farms and hunting spawns.
It can kill players and zombies in a few hits.
The machete does the same amount of damage as a hatchet, and more damage than a crowbar.
There is a good chance a zombie will make you bleed if you fight them with a machete due to unclear range and zombie animations. Practice!
- If a machete (or any melee weapon) is dropped and then picked up, you will need to reload it. This is because the machete ammo falls out, just like with guns. Melee weapons shoot large, very short-range bullets into things to imitate a melee weapon.
