—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Chainsaw (previously known as the "Laser Chainsaw"), is a Melee weapon introduced in the early versions of PG3D.

Description

It is a blue chainsaw that damages opponents in close range. It deals moderate damage, has high attack speed and mobility.

Appearance

It is a miniaturized chainsaw, but the chain is glowing with energy. It is mostly blue with a silver-colored steel part. It also has a black handle.

Performance

The player slightly swings the chainsaw to attack the opponent in close range. Despite its Chainsaw attribute, it doesn't bleed the player.

Similar to many other melee-weapons, it does not have any delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • This weapon makes a very loud noise so do not needlessly use it so you will not alert your foes.
  • Strafe around the foe while attacking.
  • The weapon glows, meaning that you should switch to a non-glowing weapon when hiding in the darkness.

Counters

  • Jump out of the way and avoid the user.
  • If attacked from behind, try to retaliate at a small distance.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Shotguns and area damage weapons can make short work of its users.
