The Meat Grinder is made available for purchase in the Rewards menu after clearing all of the main campaign episodes on Survival difficulty or higher. It is listed under the name "Bonus Weapon: Close Range Power-Tool of Death" before unlocking and later "Bonus Weapon: Meat Grinder" for 50000 BP. It can be equipped from the workbenches in both Claire and Barry's campaign. Like all bonus weapons, the player will only get a C rank for the chapter if used.
The Meat Grinder is the same as Pedro's drill. However, it does not have the charging ability and cannot be used to drill through walls. When in use, the player can grind through enemies easily. (though caution is advised on higher difficulties since enemies have more health and don't as easily stagger)
The Meat Grinder also appears in Raid Mode as part of the "Drill Charge" skill.
