Grand Theft Auto V description on Ammu-Nation and Social Club.

The Machete is a melee weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and as part of the GTA Online: Lowriders update for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. In the HD Universe, it is manufactured by Vom Feuer.

Design

3D Universe

The machete in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is based on the Panga blade design from Africa and in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it resembles the Naga Dao. The Machete is styled not after the usual Brazilian straight-grip, large blade variety used for clearing brush, but the British Gurkha and Indian Gorkha Regiment's Kukri fighting knife, which is a fearsome weapon in and of itself (in its "stories" renditions).

As expected, the Machete is a long, heavy blade with a rounded design similar to that of the Knife, in contrast to the squared design of the Meat Cleaver, another bladed weapon. The weapon is wielded and used in the same way as most bladed weapons.

Grand Theft Auto V

This article or section refers to "enhanced version" content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is absent on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.
V

The Machete returns in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, this time taking some inspiration from the Gerber Machete/Saw Combo. The machete has a bolo blade in it, most likely based on Cold Steel's Bolo machete.

Performance

3D Universe

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the machete is considered heavy, hindering the player's ability to sprint with the weapon. When an opponent is struck and not killed with the machete, they produce a larger blood trail than the Meat Cleaver, with two direct hits will kill them (or one hit, when swung in stabbing motion). The machete is a generally good all-around choice for the melee slot in the absence of the Chainsaw, along with the aforementioned Meat Cleaver, since has generally better damage over most conventional melee weapons. Its range appears to be similar to the Baseball Bat.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Machete acts similarly to weapons like the Hatchet, allowing the wielder to swing it against the target's head or body. Depending of the player' stance, a single swing can be lethal when hitting the target's ribs from the sides or right on the middle of the forehead.

The Machete is one of the few bladed weapons that can be used while on a motorcycle.
