The Chainsaw is a piece of equipment in DayZ Standalone.

General[edit | edit source]

It can be used for approximately one minute before running out of fuel. It can be refilled using a Gasoline Canister. The chainsaw can be used to quickly cut down trees and bushes. Only one swing of the saw is needed to drop a tree, in contrast to an axe which needs four or more swings.

As a melee weapon, one hit from a chainsaw does serious damage -- even if it is turned off.

Powered vs. Off[edit | edit source]
