Axe (Point Lookout)

FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of the topic, see axe.

The Axe is a melee weapon which is added to Fallout 3 with the Point Lookout add-on.


It is used by the Swampfolk and Tribals and can only be repaired with other Axes.

Similar to the Tri-beam Laser Rifle in Broken Steel, the axe has an object effect which inflicts an extra 35 damage per hit when used by non-player characters against the player. This damage ignores Damage Resistance and is independent of the condition of the weapon.


The Axe can successfully strike about 500 times from full condition before breaking.


  • The Dismemberer - Obtained from Plik after completing Plik's Safari. It is slightly stronger, and has a very high chance to turn enemies into paste and giblets, which also restores 5 AP.
