"An old axe. It's rusted, but you can still use it to defend yourself."
— Inventory description
The Axe is a short ranged melee weapon. The main attack button performs a weak but fast attack, while holding the aim button then pressing the attack button performs a strong but slow attack. It is also able to break crates and break apart other objects in the environment. The Axe can get stuck on the environment if it collides with something mid-slash extending the time before the player can swing again.
The Axe is located in a locked drawer in the dining room. The drawer can be opened using a Lock Pick.
