Unmodified Chainsaw in Evil Dead II

: Probably the most easily recognized weapon of Evil Dead, and the chainsaw hand is probably the most well known symbol of the entire franchise. After using it to behead Linda, Ash modifies the chainsaw to be attached to his right hand.

The Evil Dead

In The Evil Dead, the chainsaw is of almost totally different design.

This could mean there are two chainsaws, one that Ash puts on his hand in Evil Dead II, and one that he uses in The Evil Dead. The latter being the one Mia uses in Evil Dead 2013.

Ash finds this on a gun rack in Evil Dead II, along with some shells that he puts in his pocket (and never seems to run out of). This shotgun is used to kill Deadite Henrietta, in Evil Dead II, and several unnamed Deadites in Army Of Darkness. It starts with standard 26in. barrels at the beginning of the film, but is then shortened to 13in. by Ash's chainsaw.            

A double barreled shotgun is used in Evil Dead 2013, as well In Hail to the King, Ash is able to use his boomstick while it is later upgraded to fire shotgun shells and rock-salt. In Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick, the boomstick can fire three types of ammo (Normal, Shrapnel and Explosive) while the Blacksmith also modifies it to fire 8 shots without a reload.

Dynamite - 'Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick

Used throughout all the levels, Ash can throw the dynamite - which explodes after a few seconds and can kill most deadites with a single blast. It can damage Ash, however, if he's caught in the blast radius.

'Molotov Cocktails - 'Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick

Acquired later on in the game, the molotov cocktails are similar to the dynamite but explode instantly in a fiery blast. Ash can be damaged with these as well if it explodes too close to him.

Found in the Museum, the Spraypump sprays enemies with fuel which can then be ignited. The Spraypump is later given to the Blacksmith and made into a Flamethrower.

Leecher/Extinguisher - Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick

A weapon that Ash finds when freeing prisoners in Evil Dearborn. Ash uses it by plunging it into a deadite and repeatedly suck the blood from the deadite, cascading over Ash's shoulder and onto the ground behind him. When upgraded into the Extingusher, the weapon will first suck blood from the deadite into its mechanism before the blood then serves as ammo to hose down other deadites.

Flare Launcher - 'Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick

Found in the museum, the Flare launcher can launch not only flares but can also fire Dynamite and Molotov Cocktails in a more accurate attack as opposed to just throwing either. When Dynamite is fired, it explodes on contact with an enemy but (along with the molotov cocktails) can still damage Ash if they explode too close.

In Hail to the King, Ash has access to Knowby's pistol at the beginning of the game, although it's later upgraded into a Nail gun. In A Fistful of Boomstick, Ash is given the pistol by a Police officer after closing a vortex outside the university. The Pistol has three ammo types (Normal, Armour-Piercing and Incinerating) and is mainly a back-up if the boomstick is running low on ammo. In Regeneration, Ash gets the pistol from an Asylum prison guard who has been killed by a deadite. Here, it has unlimited ammo and has a fast firing rate but does little damage.

Hand Cannon - Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick

A weapon given to Ash by the Blacksmith. The size of a pistol but able to kill weaker deadites in a single shot, the Hand Cannon has two ammo sets; Normal and Grape-Shot.

A device that Ash cobbles together as another gadget to aid him in stopping Dr. Reinhard. The Harpoon hand fires off a harpoon attached by rope to the launcher.

Upgraded/Replacement Chainsaw - 'Evil Dead: Hail to the King, Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick, Evil Dead: Regeneration

As the title says, this is normally Ash's chainsaw that he has upgraded or a new and more powerful chainsaw that he uses in place of his old one. In Hail to the King, Ash upgrades his chainsaw first by making it into the 'Demon's Chainsaw' by giving it a bigger gasoline tank with a higher ammo limit and damage. It is later upgraded more with a large circular saw or 'Buzzsaw' which is even more damaging but with a lesser ammo limit. In A Fistful of Boomstick, Ash replaces his chainsaw with a yellow, diamond-bladed chainsaw that can cut through wire fencing and cause more damage. In Regeneration, Ash finds a yellow chainsaw with greater damaging power and a titanium blade - completely replacing his red chainsaw.
