The Meat Cleaver is a common Weapon that is regularly found in houses.

Meat Cleavers deal average damage to two zombies at a time with quick cooldown. They don't have decent knockback, however, which leaves the wielder vulnerable if there is no space to retreat to while fighting.


  • In the past, characters with the Surgeon Perk started with this weapon, but it was later replaced by the Scalpel, giving the Perk somewhat of a downgrade.
  • There is an unbreakable version of the Meat Cleaver called the Sturdy Cleaver.
