The Big Splitting Axe is sharp weapon and variant of the Two-Handed Axe featured in Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide. It can be given out as a Quest reward, sold by various Merchants and found in Metal chests or on killed Zombies.

Overview[]

The Big Splitting Axe is one of the better sharp weapons in certain aspects compared to you standard sharp weapon like a Machete. It has high damage, and above average force, with the force especially being something to look at for a sharp weapon, as they usually follow the trend of having high damage but very little force. While it may have low handling, similar to a Sledgehammer, it has the highest weapon durability for a sharp weapon. It's excellent at taking out hordes or high health Thugs, since it has a slow attack speed and high stamina usage, it deals a lot of damage and if aimed at the head, it can decapitate in just one or two hits, so hordes will die quite quickly. However it's a death sentence against certain Zombies such as the Butcher or multiple Infected. This is again due to the slow swing speed more than anything, though the stamina drain taken with each swing certainly doesn't help. These two zombies have very high attack speed and in the case of the Butcher, it does a lot of damage as well, so you can easily die thanks to the poor handling and high stamina usage, despite the force and damage offered by the weapon.
