Usage[edit | edit source]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

With the Chainsaw equipped, approach some flora (valid flora will be highlighted with a white outline) and hold Right to cut it. After the animation finishes, all flora within a 5-meter radius is cut (centered on the targeted object).[1]. Some nearby small rocks will also be destroyed and yield Limestone or Silica, although the rocks can't be targeted directly. All items produced by the destroyed flora will be transferred into the player's inventory. Several types of trees cannot be cut, usually large trees.

While the AoE can not be directly turned off, if there isn't enough space in the player's inventory, only the targeted (highlighted) flora is cut and no items are obtained. This is a known bug and not an intentional feature.[2][3]

Damage[edit | edit source]

The Chainsaw cannot be used as a weapon; it does no damage to any creature.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Chainsaw isn't used to craft anything.

AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

 Chainsaw can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 2 760 points.

Fuel consumption[edit | edit source]

The Chainsaw currently uses Solid Biofuel as fuel. It consumes 75 MW and Solid Biofuel has 450 MJ of energy, therefore one Solid Biofuel is consumed every six seconds.

The chainsaw does not support multiple fuel types due to UI limitations; there isn't currently a way for the player to specify what fuel it should consume.[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being powered by a solid form of biomass, the chainsaw still sounds like it is powered by liquid fuel.[5]
