All melee weapons have the Machine Spirit special rule: the wielder's BAB is added to damage.

Chainsword: counts as a +1 Wounding Longsword that, if it hits successfully, Rends the target for an extra 2d6 damage at the end of the round.

Eviscerator: counts as a +1 Life-Drinking Greatsword that, if it hits successfully, Rends the target for an extra 4d6 damage at the end of the round. Has a built-in 1-use Flamer. Against Vehicles, each hit deals an additional 5 damage direct to HP, and the Rending damage is also applied direct to HP.

Power Weapon: Power Weapons ignore Armour Bonuses (but not magical enhancements to Armour Bonuses) and Natural Armour Bonuses to AC, as well as Hardness and any DR that can be overcome by [Power]. They have an innate enhancement bonus equal to 1/2HD of the wielder, round down. Note that this does not allow it to specifically beat DR/magic. Usually Long Swords, Great Swords, Hand Axes or Great Axes, but there are Power Guisarmes and Power Glaive out there.
