The machete is a weapon in Dead Rising 2. It is a large heavy knife with a broad blade, used as a weapon and an tool for cutting vegetation.

The Machete is used to make two combo weapons:

  1. Pole Weapon (Machete + Push Broom).
  2. Heliblade (Machete + Toy Helicopter).

The weapon also has a special attack if Chuck is wearing the Psycho Outfit in which Chuck chops into the center of a zombie's head, kicks him/her in the groin, and then decapitates him.

  • The machete appears to be a Cold Steel Bolo Machete.
  • Despite there being two main attacks, the Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide lists two attacks (a main and combo) "2...Fast, limb-slicing swing attacks"
  • items.txt lists two attacks also.[1] yet there clearly is a third attack, the alternate attack.
  • The machete's special move when carrying the Psycho Skill Suit is a reference to Jason Voorhees, the murderer and main antagonist in Friday the 13th. Jason's signature weapon is also the machete.
  • Militia Men Big Earl and Derrick Duggan uses the machete as weapon.
