Locations

  • Clarksburg - On the top floor of the hardware store, on a shelf above a safe.
  • Crimson Prospect - Can appear southwest next to a bus, on a metal shelf, on the bottom row.
  • Mountainside Bed & Breakfast - Can spawn in the basement on the shelf with the ammo box. As of Wastelanders, one can become permanently locked out of the basement (and thus this chainsaw) by completing the miscellaneous quest with the cannibals.
  • Poseidon Energy Plant WV-06 - Inside the South Expansion, on a table with a portable grill, on the upper level accessed through the broken pipes.
  • Ranger district office barn - On a cabinet opposite a row of cages.
  • WV Lumber Co. - Can spawn on the table in front of the fusion generator on the lower interior level of the complex.

Notes

  • This weapon cannot drop as a legendary weapon.
  • Prior to patch 1.1.0.8, when repaired to 200%, it did several times its normal damage.
  • Prior to the Wastelanders update, once attached, the flamer mod could not be removed, as the chainsaw lacked a "no mod" scope modification slot.
  • The modifications for Bow Bar and Dual Bar can be learned by scrapping chainsaws. The Long Bow Bar and Chainsaw Flamer modifications must be attached via weapon mods sold by vendors.
