Axe is a Melee Clubbing weapon that can be purchased in Mexico. It can be sold to (but not purchased at) Big Al's Gun Shop.

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 counts as a Scary Weapon during the yearly Trick or Treat Halloween event.


The Axe can obtained as a purchase from Mexico. It can also be found through city finds, and purchased from the Mission reward shop for five mission reward credits.

Axes can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Melee weapons do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

A high quality Axe with a Weapon Effect can be obtained by opening a Melee Cache.


The Axe is commonly used during Halloween's Trick or Treat event due to its affordability compared to other Scary weapons.

Historical Notes

Before the introduction of Travel, the Axe was available for purchase at Big Al's Gun Shop.
