“Surprisingly sharp large machete. It is basically a big knife. Very useful for self-defense. — In-game description
The Machete is a bladed melee weapon and multipurpose tool in DayZ Standalone. Able to perform all the same tasks and doing slightly more damage with a little longer range than its other knife counterparts, the Combat Knife, Hunting Knife, Kitchen Knife and Steak Knife, the Machete could be seen as a slight upgrade from any of them. It does, however, suffer the same issue as the other knives in that it can not be stored in the melee weapon slot; made worse by the fact that it is slightly larger. Inventory issues aside, its damage, relatively small and camouflaged profile and functionality as a tool make it a solid choice as a primary melee weapon.
