When I am playing die2nite, I really dont care how long the grass is. With that said, I found a lawnmower. What should I do with it instead?

The lawnmower is a weapon that if found incomplete requires Duct Tape, Nuts & Bolts and Wrought Iron to build.

The lawnmower kills 2 zombies per use, with a 30% chance of breaking. It can be repaired using the Repair Kit or Kwik-Fix; however, this action takes 1 AP. Due to the 1 AP cost to repair while out in the field, it becomes less useful once your town has built Plumbing, especially because on average, you should get around 6-8 kills per repair. So with 2-3 repair kits it may well kill more zombies than a cart full of pistols, but the AP cost and the number of zombies it will destroy is not guaranteed so it is unreliable.


Lawnmowers are actually weapons that can be used against zombies (nice mental image there, eh?). They'll take out two zombies from a zone that you're in, with a chance of the weapon breaking, of course.

If you happened to find it in the incomplete state, it requires duct tape, nuts & bolts and wrought iron to build.

  • Correct. Each hit kills 2 zombies. According to the French wiki, it has a 30% chance of breaking with each strike, which would then require repairing it with a Kwik-Fix or Repair kit. Not so great considering it requires nuts & bolts to build.

    we usually do 7 attacks with it, thus killing 14zs with each repair kit. it is our best weapon to take out and clear paths since we got 1 repair kit which we repair for 1 ap at workshop :). we consider it great :)
