The Machete and Pistol is a melee weapon with a three part combo.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • For the first two attacks of the combo, the machete is used.
    • The third attack in the combo deals critical damage, knocks back enemies, pierces shields, and inflicts a fire status effect.
      • The pistol's blast has a greatly extended hitbox which does damage in a cone shape. This third attack is useful for crowd control, flying enemies, and finishing off enemies who are out of range of the machete.
  • Breach Bonus: 0 / 0 / 1

    • Base Breach DPS: 117 (255)

    • First Hit: 0.36 (0.26 + 0.1 + 0)
    • Second Hit: 0.5 (0.3 + 0.2 + 0)
    • Third Hit: 0.55 (0.15 + 0.4 + 0)

Location[]

PQ Loreroom cotdg

In the Prisoners' Quarters, there is a chance for a lore room to spawn with an altar. Examining this altar will drop this item. Upon doing so, player will be cursed with a one-kill curse. Picking the item up will instantly unlock it.

  • "So menacing! Should I really search it?"
  • "Oh, it's not like it's cursed or anything."

Notes[]

  • Like some other weapons, this weapon's combo can be offset by a dodge or a parry, allowing the player to change position before unleashing the pistol.
    • As such, this weapon is well suited to hit-and-run strategies, and pairs well with ranged weapons that also scale with Tactics.
  • Although the last hit of the combo appears to be ranged, the game recognizes it as a melee attack. Therefore, it can trigger relevant mutations such as Melee Mutation IconMelee or Open Wounds Mutation IconOpen Wounds.
  • This weapon functions similarly to the Twin Daggers IconTwin Daggers in that the third attack of the combo deals critical damage.
