Not to be confused with Dual Axes
The Axe was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.
The Axe can be obtained as a purchase from Mexico. It can also be found through city finds, and purchased from the Mission reward shop for four to five mission reward credits. (or as low as three credits on special offers.)
100 Axes will be restocked in Mexico after being sold out. The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.
The Axe is commonly used during Halloween's Trick or Treat event due to its affordability compared to other Scary weapons. Axes with various Weapon Bonuses are commonly used during the event. Some players equip an Axe or another clubbing weapon with the Home Run bonus in their melee slot to ward off Temporary weapons such as the Flash Grenade.
Players can gain weapon experience on Axes once the "CBT3870 Bachelor of Military Arts and Science" Education course has been completed. Axes, along with all melee weapons, receive a 10% damage bonus from the "Drunken Master" 3* special at Pubs and Restaurants, and a 2% damage bonus from the completion of the "HIS2170 Medieval History" course.
The Axe is affected by all universal buffs such as the 1% damage boost from completion of the "BIO2350 Evolution" course or the +3 accuracy from the "Seasoned Poacher" 10* Zoo special.
