A machete is a large, long, sharp knife, designed to hack through vegetation. They make handy melee weapons too.


Unnamed macheteEdit


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 long, sharpened lawn mower blade taped to a wooden handle.

If examined closely it seems to be made from a lawnmower blade as indicated by the serated opposite ends on opposites sides and the hole in the middle of the blade. Also it is used by the Legion for fighting in the Legion arena.

Machete gladiusEdit

Front-heavy and purpose-built for combat, this appears to be more of a short fighting weapon than a gardening implement.

Broad MacheteEdit

A short, broad-bladed machete. Unlike the standard version, the broad machete appears to be an actual machete rather than a constructed weapon.
