The rusty axe is a tool and melee weapon that was added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

This axe is slower and deals less damage than the modern axe, but has higher knockdown power and the highest block level for a weapon, similar to the club and the turtle shell. This can be used to prevent all damage from cannibals and mutants when blocking. The rusty axe, like the crafted axe, will chop down a tree in 13 hits (9 for the modern axe, 17 for the plane axe). It can also be upgraded and combined with cloth to add extra burning damage. Like all other axes and the katana, it can be used to dismember dead corpses.

Location[edit | edit source]

The rusty axe can be found in the submerged cave. The entrance is located here. The axe is found a the end of the cave, in the small area with decayed corpses trying to approach a crucifix on the wall. The rebreather can also be found in this cave.

If you already have the rebreather, you can take the cave 5 exit (located here, under Geese Lake) as a shortcut. Dive in the underwater hole and follow the path until you reach the rusty axe area.
