Macuahuitl's were often made of wood with prismatic blades made of obsidian. The base looks similar to a wooden club. The only difference between the club and the macuahuitl's base is that the macuahuitl's base has grooves engraved into it to hold the prismatic blades.
- The Macuahuitl was originally used by the Aztec military forces and several other precolombian Mesoamerican cultures.
- The Macuahuitl's blades were said to be sharp enough to decapitate a human and horse in one swing, making it a very dangerous weapon, at the cost of being very fragile.
- The Macuahuitl can be used only if Kotal Kahn's War God variation is chosen.
