Hey, haven't posted in forever, so why not post in a topic I can contribute to? ? So I was thinking about this awhile back. I'm a nerd and would prefer to be as accurate with weapon selection as possible. So I put together a list of weapons used, kill or otherwise. Everyone is, of course, completely entitled to do whatever they want weapon-wise,
Part 2 - Machete, Pick Axe or Spear
Part 3 - Machete, Pig Splitter (substitute for meat cleaver here, along with Parts 4 and 5)
Part 4 - Spear, Pig Splitter, Double Bitted Axe
Roy - Machete, Pig Splitter, Shears, Double Bitted Axe, Spear (substitute for metal post)
Part 6 - Spear, Machete
Part 7 - Machete, Wood Axe
Part 8 - Machete, Fire Axe
Part 9 - Machete, Spear (Substitute for road sign)
If at any point, a generic pitchfork is added, Parts 2 and 3 would have those as options as well. Couple of interesting facts/observations about this research...
The double bitted axe, pig splitter/cleaver and spear all got more use than I remembered, especially the spear (though different in design from the Part 6 spear).
Part 3 was given the wood axe, but he never actually used it. It was used against him by Chris. Part 9 also never used a double bitted axe, though it's obviously appeared a few times in the series.
Part 9 had ONE kill in his true body; a bear hug to Creighton Duke.
If all else fails, the machete is a safe choice for every Jason.
If we're being technical, Roy has the most options available. Most Jasons have at least two options. If we're being picky, Parts 3 and 9 have the least options when taking away the pig splitter and spear, respectively.
