The Chainsaw is a portable mechanized saw that is commonly used as a tool for cutting down trees. Due to its intimidating moise and potential for mutilation, it is frequently employed as a weapon in pop culture, including horror movies such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, violent crime films such as Scarface, and video games such as Doom, Gear of War, and the Resident Evil game series.
DescriptionThe player can acquire the chainsaw in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and use it as a weapon. Standing still while pressing the attack button will allow the player to swipe with the chainsaw; pressing the attack button while moving does now allow swiping, but makes the player hold out the weapon and allows full mobility. However, wielding the chainsaw will slow down the player and not allow them to sprint in some games.
Revving the chainsaw in public, in some games, will cause pedestrians to panic, and, if a police officer is nearby the player will gain a one-star wanted level, reguardless if the player harms anyone in the process, with the exception of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The chainsaw can easily remove car parts, such as hoods, bumpers and even the doors, if the vehicle isn't locked. Strangely, do to the look of the attack power, the chainsaw cannot saw off locked doors.
