Will there be a chainsaw?

21 replies 259 views Edited Apr 19, 2013

Really, I'm just guessing, but what do you guys think?

There's already---

Plank-

Pipe-

Machete-

Brink-

Bottle-

Axe-

Knife- (I think)

Rock- (?)

 

...Im drawing a blank, what other melee capable weapons were there?

Anyway, I think a chainsaw would perfectly fit in the Tlou atmosphere as a power item. I could see a big tough bandit using it as you here its engine start up echoing through the halls of a apartment. EPIC :smileyhappy:

 

A lot like this -

If he were to find one, how would he use it without electricity for twenty years? Unless they run on the same batteries as the flashlight, this wouldn't be feasible.

A lot of chainsaws run off petrol (gas for you yanks) so he could siphon it out of vehicles.

Let's see: chainsaws are heavy, noisy ( bound to attract tons of infected), and electricity-sapping. Sounds like a perfect weapon for the apocalypse :smileywink: . No doubt fun to use, but very impractical.

Although I don't think there will be a chainsaw, you don't really have any concrete evidence to say that there definitely won't be.

Iv'e carried a chainsaw and a gun before. They felt the same Wight. Shouldn't be to heavy for a big guy. And yea it would attract the infected but so would a automatic machine gun. :smileyfrustrated:

Just you wait, when we go into a 1 on 1 melee fight You use that pipe and ill bring out my own toy. If the sheer terror of it being a Chainsaw doesn't scare you then maybe its blade will. > : )
