Usage[edit | edit source]

Standard Use[edit | edit source]

  • If the Chainsaw has at least 25% Gas, spend 25% Gas. Then, one of the following possibilities occurs:
  • 5/6 chance:
  • If another living player is on your space: You perform a melee attack on a random other living player on your space in order to destroy any Shield they have or kill them instead if they don't have one.
  • If no other living player is on your space: Nothing else occurs.
  • 1/6 chance: The Chainsaw backfires, so you die.
  • If the Chainsaw does not have at least 25% Gas: The Chainsaw is destroyed (even if it's Unremovable.)
Notes[edit | edit source]
  • Chainsaw is a basic sharp melee weapon; if used on a Dead player's space with no other living player, there is flavor text about mutilating a corpse, but the Dead player's Shield is not destroyed.
  • Melee-Triggered Effects cannot activate in response to the Chainsaw backfiring.
