    Fire Axe

    Object » linked to 9 games

    Default melee weapon for the Pyro in Team Fortress 2.

    Short summary describing this thing.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    The Fire Axe is the Pyro’s melee weapon, great for ambushes and humiliations. Though it is just as powerful as most other melee weapons, using it is normally pointless for a Pyro to use it as the Flamethrower does damage much faster in close quarters while still possessing a small amount of range. It is still fun to get people with it, but to use the Fire Axe in serious combat situations is only reasonable once all other options have been exhausted.


    Melee Damage55-75
    Mini-Crit Damage75-101
    Critical Hit Damage195


    As with other melee weapons, the Fire Axe can be used to destroy sticky bombs laid by enemy Demomen, however the same can be accomplished more safely by using the Pyro's Flamethrower to airblast them away or the Shotgun to destroy them from a distance.
