A Stone Axe is a multi-purpose Tool that can be used to cut wood, dig earth, mine ores, repair damaged blocks much like a Repair Tool as well as serving as a melee Weapon. It is very easy to craft and all the required items needed to craft it can be obtained very easily. A Stone Axe cannot be dismantled, scrapped or melted in a Forge, but it can be used as a source of Combustible fuel. It is recommended that you craft a Stone Axe as soon as possible as it is extremely useful early in the game.
As a Tool
When using a Stone Axe as a tool it can be used in the following ways
- Clicking the left mouse button will swing a Stone Axe and hit any item that is behind the cross-hair and within range, this will allow you to cut down Trees, dig into the earth and mine down into the Stone found underground. It should be noted that a Stone Axe is not an appropriate tool for any particular type of block and it will take much longer to destroy blocks when compared to using the correct appropriate tool.
- Clicking the right mouse button will use a Stone Axe to repair any block that is behind the cross-hair and within range, provided that the block in question can be repaired. You can also use a Stone Axe as an upgrade tool in the same way a Repair Tool is used. A Stone Axe can only be used to upgrade a block if you are carrying the correct items needed to perform the upgrade, if you have these items then clicking the right mouse button on the block will upgrade it. A Repair Tool is more efficient than a Stone Axe when used for upgrading blocks.
As a Weapon
- During combat a Stone Axe is a functional, if not very effective short range weapon, with its combat potential having been decreased significantly since Alpha 11. It can be effective against one or two Zombies, but its use is not advised when dealing with a group of Zombies at close quarters. It can be used more effectively against single Zombies when combined with the stealth of crouching to launch a sneak attack.
Before you can craft a Stone Axe you will need the following items.
1x Small Stone
1x Plant Fibers
