The fire axe is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

The fire axe, firefighter's axe, or pick head axe has a pick-shaped pointed poll (area of the head opposite the cutting edge). It is decorated in red to make it easily visible during an emergency. Its primary use is for breaking down doors and windows.

The fire axe can be combined with a sledge hammer to create the Defiler.

Fire axes can be found commonly in the Underground as well as in the Fortune City Arena, in addition to a few in the Yucatan Casino and a couple in the Safe House.

Trivia[]

  • In the PC game file items.txt, there is a weapon called the "FiremanFireAxe" (probably for the Fire Fighter Skills Pack, which has exactly the same appearance as the fire axe).
  • In the beta version of Dead Rising 2, the fire axe could bisect enemies, but due to problems, the axe can now only decapitate, not bisect.[Verification needed]
