fire axe is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The fire axe is a wooden handled axe with a heavy steel head intended for firefighting use. It has a broad finely sharpened front blade and a sharp pick point on the rear of the head. The long hardwood handle allows for sweeping attacks at reasonable distance and is partially rubber coated to ensure a good grip on the weapon. Originally designed for breaking down walls and doors, this weapon can inflict severe damage to a soft target.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack, which does 50% damage in Mauler V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 more action points, but has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee skill of 50).

If you dismember an opponent, the fire axe will have a blood stain on the blade, which will disappear in a matter of seconds.
Due to its early availability at the Tribal Village, the axe's special move can allow the Courier to complete knock down challenges much sooner in the game than other methods. The others are the Ranger Takedown, brahmin tipping, Knock-Knock (Mauler), Super Slam! and the companion Rex.
In Honest Hearts, when held by a White Leg, the fire axe will not drop to the ground with the body, but will float in an angled position above the body. The body can be searched from the axe.
pc This weapon and its unique variant "Knock-Knock" can perform the spinning power attack but only deal damage to one target.
