The Meat Cleaver is a large knife used primarily by butchers to cut slabs of meat into thinner slices. In both games, it can be used as a melee weapon.
Like other melee weapons in the game, the Meat Cleaver can damage cars and people, leaving the victim bleeding, with a trail of blood dropping on the ground.
