Chainsaw is a Melee Mechanical weapon that can be purchased from and sold to Big Al's Gun Shop, where it is the most expensive Melee weapon item available.

The Chainsaw was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.

The Chainsaw counts as a Scary Weapon during the yearly Trick or Treat Halloween event. It has a stealth rating of 3.0, the lowest of any Melee weapon.

Along with the Taser, the Chainsaw is one of only two Mechanical weapons currently available to players. Because of this, the Chainsaw is the highest damaging, least accurate, and least stealthy Mechanical weapon in Torn.

As Mechanical weapons cannot be obtained from Caches, there is currently no way to get a Chainsaw that is Yellow, Orange, or Red quality or over 100% quality.

Obtaining

The Chainsaw is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds.

Chainsaws can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Melee weapons do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

Usage

The Chainsaw is commonly used during Halloween's Trick or Treat event due to its affordability compared to other Scary weapons.

Due to the low number of Mechanical weapons in the game, the Chainsaw is often used to get the 1,000 Mechanical finishing hits for the War Machine honor.

Historical Notes

The Chainsaw saw heavy use in the early days of the game due to being the highest damaging melee weapon at the time. This was especially true after the Samurai Sword was moved from Big Al's to Mexico.
