This is one of the less useful weapons for general self-defense since it has a mediocre chance to stun Jason. Its worthiness depends on whether or not a counselor has high strength, and what their goal is regarding Jason.
Due to its high damage, counselors with high strength are capable of knocking Jason's mask off in a handful of swings. And since it doesn't stun Jason very often, it's a very useful weapon when trying to kill Jason. Unfortunately, Jason can simply grab a counselor to execute them; most counselors by themselves won't get a chance to hurt Jason, meaning counselors seeking to demask him should either move together as a group or arm themselves with a pocket knife in case Jason gets tired of dueling someone.
Otherwise, if you want basic protection, the machete isn't a great choice; try finding a weapon with higher stun potential instead. But considering that it's a somewhat rare weapon to find as of Patch 1/30/2018, it's a good idea to remember where you found a machete on the map just in case your team needs one later.
