The Axe sports a shorter reach, greater durability, and does a lot more damage than the Board With Nails. Crafting it requires parts, which can be found in containers and chests throughout the map, or can be bought from merchants.

Trivia Edit

  • An Axe can be found in the destroyed house on the way to Doctor's House.
  • Except for the Staff, The Three sell all components required for crafting the weapon, though it takes three days to purchase enough tape.
  • Prior to Alpha 8.0, the Axe and Shovel had identical crafting and upgrade requirements other than the edge, so the player had a choice of primary weapon once they reached that point. Currently, the Axe now requires a workbench level that can't be reached until Chapter 2, while the Shovel has been made into a much slower weapon.
