The Machete is a relatively powerful and fast melee weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. In GTA Vice City, the machete is considered heavy, hindering the player's ability to sprint with the weapon. When an opponent is struck and not killed with the machete, they produce a larger blood trail than the Meat Cleaver, with two direct hits will kill them (or one hit, when swung in stabbing motion). The machete is a generally good all-around choice for your melee slot in the absence of the Chainsaw. The Machete is styled not after the usual Brazilian straight-grip, large blade variety used for clearing brush, but the British Gurkha and Indian Gorkha Regiment's Khukri fighting knife, which is a fearsome weapon in and of itself (in its "stories" renditions).

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

  • The Machete in this game is unobtainable outside missions and can only be found in the hands of criminals during the Vigilante side mission. A Yakuza gang member is also seen using this weapon during the mission Cash in Kazuki's Chips but there's no way to keep it because the player switches to a Katana automatically later on in the mission.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories



  • In Grand Theft Vice City Stories, the machete resembles the Naga Dao.
  • A larger version of the Machete can be found in any Ammu-Nation in GTA V, however it can't be used by the player.
  • Unlike the Katana, the Machete cannot be used to decapitate an opponent, despite its deadly power.
