Description[edit | edit source]

A Steel Fireaxe is a Wood harvesting tool. The recipe requires Forged Steel (which requires the Steel Smithing (Skill))so it is a fairly late-game tool.

A Steel Fireaxe is a great tool for Wood based blocks, but not near as effective against metal, dirt or stone. It cannot be dismantled, but it can be scrapped, melted in a Forge and burnt as a source of Combustible fuel. As a weapon it is used at close range and does not require any Ammunition.

Uses[edit | edit source]

As a Tool[edit | edit source]

When used as a tool a Steel Fireaxe is especially suited to the felling of trees, which in turn allows you to gather the Wood that are dropped when a tree is chopped down. It is also effective when used to destroy wood based blocks. As it is an appropriate tool for wood based blocks it will be more efficient to use than other tools, with the exception of the Chainsaw. A Steel Fireaxe is capable of destroying blocks up to five blocks away. A Steel Fireaxe will increase the amount of materials that you receive from harvesting, but it will be slow when used against anything but wood. It will give about half of the items (Raw Meat, etc) when used to butcher an animal, but it will destroy the carcass quickly.

As a Weapon[edit | edit source]

During combat a Steel Fireaxe is a reasonably effective short range weapon and can kill an average Zombie with three direct hits to the head or five hits or more to the body. It is more effective against one or two Zombies and will not be very effective when dealing with a group of several Zombies at close quarters. It can be used quite effectively against single zombies when combined with the stealth of crouching to launch a sneak attack.

Crafting Recipe[edit | edit source]

To Craft, go to a Workbench and find Steel Fireaxe in the list, or search for it in your Crafting window search bar.

Repair[edit | edit source]

The condition of a Steel Fireaxe deteriorates with each use until eventually it will no longer work, before this happens it can be repaired. This can be done using Forged Steel which will restore the durability. As of Alpha 13, if you are low level and repair your high level Fireaxe it deteriorates the quality closer to your level instead of the tools. For example, if your tool crafting skill is level 10 and you repair a 600 quality Fireaxe, its quality will decrease by a certain percentage with each repair.

Scrapping[edit | edit source]

A Steel Fireaxe can be scrapped by clicking on the Fireaxe and selecting "Scrap". This will however return a large quantity of Scrap Iron rather than Steel.


  • The effectiveness of chopping depends on your stamina and condition of the weapon. The higher your stamina and condition of your Steel Fireaxe, the more resources that you will harvest with each swing.
