The Plane Axe is an axe, tool, and weapon that was added in update v0.01 of The Forest.

Similar to the Lighter, it is technically provided to players at the beginning of the game, however will be picked up before leaving said plane and cannot be avoided, though can still be dropped upon death in Multiplayer sessions. This is the first weapon a player will obtain.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Once equipped, the plane axe may be swung with the left mouse button. Like other axes and melee weapons, the plane axe can be used to block by holding the right mouse button. It can also be used to attack enemies and can stun them for a moment.

It will take approximately 4-6 hits to kill a starving cannibal and approximately 8-12 hits to kill the stronger and more developed cannibals. In the early game it helps to make a wrapped plane axe and light it when fighting cannibals due to the damage boost it gets when burning.

The plane axe can also be used on large trees to get logs and tree sap, small trees to get sticks and leaves, bushes and ferns to get leaves, locked suitcases to open them, and animals to kill them. It can also be used to break cannibal effigies to get their building components. Chopping down a tree will take exactly 17 hits.

The plane axe can also dismember a corpse of a cannibal by chopping downward with the left mouse button over the different sections of the body. Furthermore, it is used by the player to skin animals after killing them, it is also used to skin creepy mutants for armor. This, however, is an automatic action, the axe is used to skin even when another item is wielded, and the plane axe does not need to be equipped beforehand for the skinning to work, nor does it need to be in your inventory. However, as of update V0.72, the plane axe cannot be placed anywhere, such as on a weapon rack, and will always stay in the player's inventory.

As with most axes, the plane axe can be combined with cloth, letting it be lit with the lighter (default L) for burning damage, or upgraded using tree sap with feathers, teeth, or booze, adding permanent weapon bonuses each time.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The plane axe appears to be based on the D42 Crash Axe, a survival tool developed by the military in WWII for use in airplanes. It is a combination axe, pick and knife. The cutout in the center is actually designed to be used to turn gas valves and fire hydrants on or off.
  • The plane axe's handle reads "1807GEB". It is currently unclear if this has any meaning, though could simply be a serial code.
  • Prior to update v0.72, the plane axe was able to be stored on weapon racks, ground weapon holders and the wall weapon rack. This was removed and the plane axe can no longer be stored.

Known Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • If the Plane Axe is lost or removed from the player's inventory upon death in Multiplayer, and the player does not retrieve the lost items afterwards, skinning an animal without the Plane Axe in the inventory will somehow still trigger the standard animation with the Plane Axe equipped, without actually having it.
