The Modern Axe is a tool and weapon that was added in update v0.02 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The modern axe has a carbon steel head with a fiberglass shaft. It is the best available real axe for tree cutting in the game.

When used as a weapon, it deals five bars of damage. The modern axe swings slower than the plane axe, but knocks down cannibals more often than its weaker counterparts. Possessing nine bars of block, equivalent to the crafted axe and Crafted Club, it blocks almost all damage. The rusty axe, turtle shell, and club will block 100% of damage however.

The modern axe uses 7.9 points of stamina per swing and 23 points for a power attack. It is capable (with upgrades) of doing more than 3x more damage than the katana. The modern axe is often regarded to be the best weapon in the game.

Location[edit | edit source]

There is only one location where the modern axe can be found, in the hanging cave (cave 2): The Forest Map Location [1]

  • Enter the cave from the west entrance (in the cliff near the native camp by the lake on the southern portion of the map). Continue down the passage until you enter a room. Upon entering this room, turn right and find a small passage leading to a long rope. At the bottom of this rope, follow the cave passage until you find a room with many boxes. The modern axe is located here along with a can of red paint, some soda, modern arrows, meds, dynamite, ropes and flares, along with some story items.
