- "America's West African arms trade isn't just about giving. Rediscover the simple life with this rusty cleaver."
- ―Ammu-Nation Description
The Vom Feuer Machete is a relatively powerful and fast melee weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and added to Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the GTA Online: Lowriders update for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game.
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 Kukri fighting knife, which is a fearsome weapon in and of itself (in its "stories" renditions).
