Deathloop Wiki

The Machete is a melee weapon found in Deathloop. It is picked up during the Tutorial and cannot be unequipped.


The Machete is the only melee weapon found in the game and allows you to perform silent takedowns. This is done by approaching the target from behind and then pressing the button prompt when it appears.


  • The 'Royal Protector' variant included in the PS5 pre-order is a reference to Corvo Attano, a protagonist in Arkane's Dishonored franchise, who bears the title "Royal Protector". The material and texture of the blade also resemble that of Corvo's iconic mask in Dishonored 2.
