Chainsaws are the Hard Mode version of axes. Chainsaws can also be used as an effective weapon. Chainsaws can deal damage quickly, but are unable to produce an attacking arc. As such, the player must face the enemy when attacking. The best prefix for any chainsaw is Godly, as you can not get a modifier that affects size or speed.

While none of the chainsaws are capable of matching the Molten Hamaxe's 150% axe power; they are far quicker in combat and can cut down trees faster.
