We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Chainsaws are a special type of axe that exist largely in Hardmode and can be used as an effective weapon. Much like the Muramasa and other fast-swinging swords, Chainsaws can deal very large amounts of damage quickly, but trade off the wide arc of such weapons for the ability to be pointed in any direction. Oddly enough, none of the chainsaws (not even the Drax or the Chlorophyte Chainsaw) surpass the Molten Hamaxe and its 150% axe power (the Butcher's Chainsaw and the Laser Drill tie it), but, from Palladium and on, they are able to cut down trees faster due to the rapid rate at which they hit the tree.
