The Machete is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online. It cannot be customized.


With a sharp broad blade, the Machete is designed for harvesting sugar cane, or clearing through forest undergrowth. However, this doesn't stop it from being an effective melee weapon with a longer range than most. One strong hack with this weapon will take any target down quickly and quietly.


The machete can be purchased from all fences after "Fleeting Joy".

It can be looted of the corpses of Night Folk at any time.

It can also be looted from a Bounty hunter attacking Charles in the mission "The First Shall Be Last" and from a Murfree in the mission "That's Murfree Country".

It can be obtained during the third encounter in "A Bright Bouncing Boy", a machete can be found near the corpse of Marko Dragic.

In Online, the machete is unlocked after reaching Rank 32.

It can be looted from slain Skinner Brothers from the missions "The Tool Box" and "Uncle's Bad Day" in Epilogue Part 2.
