Description[edit | edit source]

The Chainsaw is a multipurpose item that can be used as a tool (for rapidly destroying wood blocks/trees) and for short range melee attacks. It's similar to the Auger but more efficient against blocks vulnerable to the Fireaxe.

The Chainsaw needs Gas Cans to fuel it. To refuel the Chainsaw, Press "R" with the Chainsaw selected, and with a Gas Can in your inventory. This takes a few seconds to refill.

A Chainsaw will increase the amount of materials that you receive from harvesting, but it will be slow when used against anything but wood. It will give no items (Raw Meat, etc) when used to butcher an animal, but it will destroy the carcass quickly.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

As of A13, you can now craft the Chainsaw. You need:

Repairing[edit | edit source]

You can use Repair Kits to repair your Chainsaw.

Scrapping[edit | edit source]

Due to their rarity and the usefulness of the constituent parts, it is inadvisable to scrap a Chainsaw but it is possible. Doing so provides Scrap Iron.

Heat Map[edit | edit source]

Whenever you use a Chainsaw it affects the Heatmap. If used for long enough or if multiple chainsaws are used simultaneously, it will attract zombies. If the heat level gets high enough, it will attract one or more screamer zombies.

For a better understanding of the heatmap and heat, see Heatmap.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Can be found inside Garage Storage boxes and Decayed Sedans and with the new update inside Working Stiffs Crate once broken open.
  • It can also be looted from Lumberjack zombies in rare occasions.
  • Use with caution: the Chainsaw makes a lot of noise and may alert zombies of your presence.
  • This said, it is possibly the best weapon in the game for killing zombies at close range, bringing down even bloated walkers in less than a second on Nomad difficulty.
  • Runs on gasoline tanks as fuel and empties them quite fast. Expect a yield of 6-8 trees per tank.
  • The durability is based on the durability of the weakest item, the engine.
