Its handle is (possibly) made out of ebony. A gold-colored capping is seen at the end and a standard axe head is fitted at the top.
Although the axe has a slower attack speed than the sword and hinders the sapper a little, it packs a punch, killing soldiers in 2 hits if they are at full health. The sapper has about the same range as a sword, and the sapper's axe can destroy most constructs faster than most other tools.
The axe is also a slow weapon and getting attacked by a fast swinging weapon can be your demise, however you can beat a soldier who is using a sword, provided you don't miss. Using a axe in stealth warfare can be a good tactic.
Pros and Cons
- High damage.
- Destroys constructions very fast.
