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 DayZ.

The Machete is a versatile melee weapon that has a secondary use as a general purpose tool. It is found in residential and hunter areas across both Chernarus and Livonia and favoured by many for its great durability.

Although the Machete does have several different beneficial uses, it also has multiple shortcomings when compared to other melee weapons. The Machete has a relatively short attack range, meaning players will have to close the distance between themselves and their target to land effective blows. The Machete also deals meagre damage which, combined with its average swing time, means that it has a poor overall damage output.
