Fire Axe

"Teach the valuable lesson of fire safety."

The Fire Axe is the stock melee weapon for the Pyro. It is a firefighter's axe with its head (but not blade) painted a worn-out red color, atop a curved wooden handle. The axe head appears red regardless of which team the user is on.

Like most melee weapons, each hit deals 65 points of damage, and can be swung every 0.8 seconds. As the Pyro specializes in close-range damage, especially that of their Flame Thrower, the utility of such a weapon is questionable. Regardless, the Pyro's average speed and above-average health means they have a higher chance of connecting their hits without dying. The Fire Axe's ability to deal 195 damage on a random crit gives the user a chance to immediately kill most classes, with a potent backup in the Flame Thrower if the enemy survives. This makes the Fire Axe a slightly more viable melee weapon compared to other classes, but still unimpressive compared to the Pyro's primary and secondary weapons.
