A Machete is a large cutting tool. It is generally used to cut through dense foliage or other environments. As it is a bladed weapon, it can be used as a Combat Knife, or as a makeshift surgical implement for amputation of limbs.
In Battlefield Vietnam, the Machete is issued as the melee weapon for all NVA kits. It is a redesigned Axis combat knife, featuring identical stats and files to the Axis knife, but having a different skin and animations. It requires between one and four strikes to kill, depending where each attack hits.
Because Battlefield Vietnam features different loadouts for each faction, this list may not be specific enough. Please see each faction's respective page for information on individual weapon kits and loadouts.
