A Machete and its associated HUD icon in GTA Vice City

The Machete is a relatively powerful and fast melee weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. In GTA Vice City, the machete is considered heavy, disallowing the player the ability to sprint with the weapon. When a pedestrian is struck and not killed with the machete it produces a larger blood trail than the Meat Cleaver. The machete is a generally good all around choice for your melee slot in the absence of the Chainsaw. 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 Khukri fighting knife, which is a fearsome weapon in and of itself. In the Stories renditions, the HUD icon and the in-game version for the machete looks a lot like a lengthened knife. In Vice City Stories, the machete is a Naga Dao, used by the Naga tribe of Nagaland, north-eastern India.
