The machete is a hand held knife-like tool and weapon added in update v0.63 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Like the Plane axe, the machete will chop down trees in 17 hits (9 for the modern axe, 13 for the crafted axe and the rusty axe). It can also dismember dead bodies.

The machete can cut stick trees, bushes, shrubs in one hit. This allows for fast stick gathering though greatly diminishes the amount of leaves you will harvest.

The machete has very short range. Almost all other melee weapons in the game have longer range than the machete. Even Bones and Turtle Shells have longer range. Longer range will allow you to create more distance between enemies and allow you to hit more enemies at the same time.

Despite it says the block power is '0' the machete does block attacks, equivalent to the katana

The machete can be upgraded.

The machete cannot receive fire upgrades.

Location[edit | edit source]

The Machete is one of the most difficult items to obtain in the game, being found at the bottom of the sinkhole, next to the crashed helicopter, where there is a large number of enemies. It can be found here IconTheForestMap.png.
