—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Chainsaw (previously known as the "Laser Chainsaw"), is a Melee weapon introduced in the early versions of PG3D.


It is a blue chainsaw that damages opponents in close range. It deals moderate damage, has high attack speed and mobility.


It is a miniaturized chainsaw, but the chain is glowing with blue energy. The weapon has a blue scheme with silver-colored steel part. It also has a black handle.


The player slightly swings the chainsaw to attack the opponent in close range. Despite its Chainsaw attribute, it doesn't bleed the target.

Similar to many other melee-weapons, it does not have any delay mechanics.



  • This weapon is a bad option for stealth when it makes a loud noise when swung, alerting nearby enemies.
  • Strafe around the target while attacking.
  • The weapon glows, meaning that you should switch to a non-glowing weapon when using the darkness for cover.


  • Jump out of the way and avoid the user.
  • If attacked from behind, try to retaliate at a small distance.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Shotguns and area damage weapons can make short work of its users.

  • Initial release. It was previously known as the "Laser Chainsaw".


  • Its name was changed from "Laser Chainsaw" to "Chainsaw".


  • Its predecessor called the "Tiny Chainsaw" was removed in this update for unknown reasons.


  • The noise is similar to the Dragon Breath.
  • It was previously called the Laser Chainsaw.
    • Because of previously being the Laser Chainsaw, when a player kills another player, the player dies in a fashion the way all energy weapons share, such as the Prototype.
    • After an update, all the death animations were gone and replaced by the 'default' one.
  • This weapon, along with the Chainsaw Sword, are the only weapons with the "Chainsaw" property prior to the introduction of Meat Grinder in 12.1.0 update.
  • When killing a player with it, they will emit a blue smoke and disappear. This occurance also happens with the Alien Gun, Freeze Ray Rifle, Sub-zero, and Mercenary.
