The Dwarfs!? Axe is a two-handed axe for the Berserker perk, and is only purchasable from the trader after unlocking the "Not A War hammer" achievement in Dwarfs!? (accumulate 40k gold total)or purchasing the full game. The Dwarfs!? Axe is slow and powerful, and its primary fire can knock back enemies. It has a headshot multiplier of x1.1, lower than the x1.25 of the Scythe and Fire axe. At £3000 it is the most expensive melee weapon (same as the Claymore).

The Dwarfs!? Axe is a good choice for Berserkers soloing on the higher difficulties, particularly against a raging Scrake or Fleshpound. If timed correctly, a swing from this weapon can interrupt a Fleshpound's charge thanks to the knock-back effect of the primary fire. Subsequent swings and careful footwork to avoid the Fleshpound's attacks can enable the berserker to finish it off without taking damage. A recommended tactic is to allow a Fleshpound within striking distance and knocking it back just as it swings at the player. Doing this at approximately 3 second intervals allows the Berserker to safely chip away at the Fleshpound's health without causing it to rage. Repeatedly using the alternate fire against a Scrake's head can chain-stun and eventually kill it in 2-5 blows, depending on difficulty and number of players.
