How do I make a chainsaw in Die2Nite? Or is it something that I have to pick up?
You have to find the incomplete chainsaw. Then you also have to find an incomplete engine and build that. Then you combine the two. The net cost is 2 nuts & bolts plus a handful of other items, which is hard for a lot of people to swallow for a simple weapon. But man does it rip through zombies. Each attack kills 3 zombies, and you need to feed it a new battery about 1 in 3 attacks. Best of all, after you've spent the batteries, your inventory is now free to carry back items.
