Tips & Tricks
- Using Machete:
It's recommended for you to use the primary attack as your primary source of damage, because the secondary attack have some noticeable disadvantages.
You can use the slow stab to your own advantage, as most of the times, it will be hard for your opponent to estimate the time when your stab can hit him(due to the stab animation).
- Playing against Machete:
Use the slow stab of the Machete to your advantage, rushing the oponnent and not giving him much time to land his stab will be the safest way to win. You should usually rush the target after he/she randomly stabs once, which would be hard to cast another stab on you.
Be aware of your opponent's slash, as he/she can kill you easily with single slash on the head (unless you're armored).
