The machete appears to be a makeshift weapon, and consists of a lawn mower blade strapped to a wooden handle. It is the primary melee weapon of
Caesar's Legion. Aside from having a low Strength requirement it also does bonus limb damage. Holding down the attack button causes the player to swing it around and up at their target.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack that does 70% damage in Back Slash V.A.T.S. at the cost of 4 fewer action points. Unusually for melee weapons, there is no Melee Skill requirement to use this attack.

One is automatically given to you when dueling in the arena, and it can be kept if you don't have one already.
You can find one in a pile of ashes near a dead body inside of Nipton, by a trailer on the right side of the street, along with a set of Caesar's Legion armor.
Legion assassins will also carry them.
Various Freeside thugs can be found carrying them.
A unique variant, Liberator, is carried by the Legion Decanus Dead Sea at Nelson.
There is one in the yard of the NCR Correctional Facility, stuck and left in an overturned bench.
