Chainsaw Bayonet

By Zombie Hunter Sam

Ash Lancer
Certain weapons are exemplary models of undead destruction. A chainsaw is good. A rifle is better. A rifle with a bayonet can come in handy. A chainsaw bayonet?

Well, it’s not something I’d like to be on the wrong side of. One part electric chainsaw, plus one part tactical rail mount equals twelve parts zombie decapitation. There are distinct benefits to using this weapon attachment – you won’t need a strong body to kill the undead, there is a great morale boost to carrying one of these around, it would be handy for carving particularly thick-skinned venison. As the video below shows, sometimes a zombie head won’t be destroyed by bullets alone.

Yeah, it’s pretty badass. As a tactical zombie weapon, it has some merit. When you run out of ammo in a tight spot, an electric chainsaw attached to the end of your rifle will be a nice thing to have, but you must realise you risk contamination, friendly fire and other hazards by waving that thing around. It should be your last defense. If a zombie infection is a blood-borne pathogen, you won’t be wanting any of that getting on you. The bayonet could come in very handy for entering places and point defense / room clearing. Carrying around a charger and spare batteries will cause problems.

There’s plenty of mess to clean up after you’re done carving those heads. I’d say leave the chainsaw bayonet as a novelty. You don’t want blood in your eye and if the power goes out, you’re not going to find any extension cords handy. I must admit, however, that it would be a great tool to have for de-limbing trees. And zombies.

If you can, get your hands on the AA-12. And somebody please send me one to review!

    I wish I could make something like this. All I have at the moment is a handgun. Shotgun soon to come.

    lol this is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen, you know its good when you got the airborne sporting one, (red berrete’) to bad that goes against regulation up were i live, er, well not yet anyway, not till i get my hands on a beutie like that

  • 3 Alec0519 Jan 15, 2009 at 12:15 am

    i have another idea for a weapon to use during the zombie apocalypse, it could be like a large barreled muzzle loader almost but with like a hand cranked scrap grinder on top that feeds into the barrel like a tin can shredder or something but then you could just put shredded scrap and gunpowder in it and you wont hane to use bullets give e thaughts and if its a bad idea please dont make fun of me too bad

    I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings, but this article is absolutely ridiculous. Sure, it is easier for someone to rip a zombie apart if they have a chainsaw than if they are using a small fixed blade, but the consequences that come with using a chainsaw in combat, even off of the end of a gun, are much more grave than the advantages, of which there are practically none. The morale boost that a chainsaw bayonet gives is a false and inflated one. The bayonet will make people feel more invincible, which will make them get into more dangerous and suicidal situations that they don’t have to be in. In reality, chainsaws will get caught on bone, will spew blood, tissue, and bone fragments everywhere, including onto and into non-infected bodies. Even if the pathogen isn’t blood-borne, there are still a host of other diseases that will be in the blood and on the tissue. Also, zombies will not react like the locust. A chainsaw take down will not leave the zombies helpless, they will still claw at you with the few seconds that they have, and will kill you if your chainsaw stops working when you are halfway through them. Another disadvantage to the chainsaw bayonet is that it will attract all zombies within hearing distance of the chainsaw. You will never have respite from the hordes of zombies that will be drawn to the whining of the chainsaw until each one of them is dead. You may as well just shoot yourself and get it over with.

    Oh I know, it’s a far too impracitcal weapon to use during a zombie scenario, but it’s still pretty badass. I wouldn’t want splattered zombie guts on me or my team. Perhaps if you’re in a chem-suit and doing barrier protection it could come in handy, and also be useful for door breaching and the like if you’re on an entry team or recon and supply gathering team.

    Zombie guts in your face =/= fun :(

    The sound will attract zombies! Why use a chainsaw when you can use a machate and chop the blighters arm of silently before decapiting it! Another disadvantage, most evidence about zombies viruses (rabies for instant) is gave of by contact with bodily fluids and can lead to a full blown infection if it comes in contact with a wound, or scab.

    Oh and i heard news of a missing person, and i think most of the search party is cops, i recon this could be a dilema of a outbreak near me! I hope so, (im crazy yes) id get to shoot bullies heads of!! (yay!!)

    Although this is badass, it seems very inafitiant. The noise would attract every ghoul, aswell as raider in a 1 mile radious. P ower would drain quikly too. P.S. I have a ruger 10/22 bolt action rifle, I can clean the damn thing blind fullded, and have roughly 750 rounds on hand, would this be decent as a primary firearm in a class 1-2 outbreak?

  • 10 logan Jun 12, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    bit too much gears of war, eh? good idea, but if you’re not in a suit that covers every inch of your body, and the getting blood on you thing proves to be true, you’ve basically just bought yourself a first class ticket on the non stop ride to death. as others said, the noise would be way too much of a problem. it would be cool though.

  • 11 prophet Oct 9, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    i love it! its the best idea ever

  • 12 Orange glint Oct 23, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    Common sense dictates the uselessness of a chainsaw in any combat situation, let alone against zombies. I sincerely doubt many of the pepole who love this have ever used a chainsaw. Stabing or swinging a chainsaw at anything causes the tip to rebound in the oposite direction. The blood would also be sprayed all over you and any zombies not already in the melle would hear the noise and attack you. Once out of power the chainsaw would become useless. And the morale boost would only end up getting you killed. And with its small size it would end up getting stuck halfway into a zombies neck.

    Ps to franks comment about his ruger above. I have a semi auto version that I would use if traveling and as my main weapon in alot of situations. Pepole underestimate the power of a 22. 550 22s or 12 shotgun shells in the same space, take your pick. Though id suggest getting some barrel clips for it.

  • 13 mike Oct 25, 2009 at 1:36 am

    the 22 is great for headshots, but when i want to take out somthing coming at me fast(running zombies) im grabbing my 12 gauge. the chainsaw is only good in DOOM

  • 14 josho123 Nov 5, 2009 at 6:19 pm

    although it would get blood all over you and it might get you infected, it could be usefull 4 other things cutting through a door or somthing like that

  • 15 mike Nov 6, 2009 at 1:56 am

    yeah but i could just as easily blow a lock with a 12 gauge slug, much quicker

  • 16 josho123 Nov 6, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    true you could do that…… but still you could use it 4 breaching and stuff

  • 17 Orange glint Nov 10, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Or save the space weight and gas needed and use a crowbar (witch is my travel melle weapon) or like mike said; use a shotgun shell. Chances are for me that if some place is barricaded its either filled with armed survivors or a ton of zombies that used to be survivors. KNOCK FIRST.

  • 18 Psicerio Jan 27, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    i would kill to have a weapon like that! but wouldnt there be a off center weight? but i guess thats fixable just like a lead stock or something that might work,.

  • 19 mike Jan 28, 2010 at 8:38 am

    hah! thats gonna be the zombie survivers qoute of the week. ” before you blow the lock…always knock.”

  • 20 logan Jan 29, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Haven’t seen Pvt. Unknown lately…

  • 21 PurpleEater Mar 10, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    @Psiciero: It would actually lessen the kick of your gun quite a bit, so I’d just as soon leave it w/out the weighted stock.

  • 22 PFC Unknown Mar 14, 2010 at 3:01 am

    @ Logan, im still kickin ;) been out doing normal soldier things, missions, getting smoked for doing pranks on fellow soldiers, or worse, commanding officers o.O just passing the time in the sand box.

    @ Psicerio i would be with Purple eater, it would lesson the muzzle rise when fireing, but at the same time (if you dont have a weapon heavy enough like an M-4) it would be pretty front heavy, and it would be a pain in the rear to keep a stable aiming platform, but its possible, as for lead stock, that would be over kill on weight, most guns (shotguns, assault rifles, high powered rifles) tend to be on the heavy side anywho, 5-10 pounds not counting being loaded, so it would be a hassel lugging it around on the move.

    p.s. i vote for the new quote (ryhmed lol) id deffinatly knock before i blow the lock, unless i know its clear of antsy survivors and full of zeds, then im kickin the door in and goin to town, well on second thought maybe not, (ryhmed again) ill figure it out when i get there, as for now we got camel spider fights going down next door, ill be back lol

    gotta love the carnaige of a chainsaw… you have to admitt if you had two choices … 1.) regular bayonett … or 2.) CHAINSAW bayonet wich do you think you would pickup… the fact that he could affix a chainsaw to a rifle and both of them function is pretty cool, and the virus getting in open cuts scabs and openings… its called band aides people!

  • 24 TOPGUN777 Oct 23, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    yeah i’m pretty sure when you have a large ammo supply and a gun safe stuffed full of rifles, pistols, and shotguns of various types like me you don’t really need some sort of creative weapons I mean in Stratton, Maine thats as remote as it gets (except for some town in Nebraska or some place near there that has a town population of 1) I mean really! you only need a some what fast and durable car, friends, a gun, food supply, and (this will be very important for traveling) a computer to communicate to everybody outside your area. and chainsaws aren’t great at all because of fuel or energy consumption, plus its loud and bulky.

  • 25 raygunraven Jan 23, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    This is liteally the worst weapon for several reasons:
    *A chainsaw is a melee weapon you have to reload(gas and power cells run out)
    *Its loud heavy and dificult to control
    *its ineficient: a two pound machete vs.a ten pound chainsaw
    *and it’s on the end of a gun! Know what that means?your accuracy has suddenly gone to Shit!

  • […] certainly been seen before from the maker crowd, but now the (unwieldy) chainsaw rifle attachment has leveled up to […]
