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.

Currently, the Dwarfs!? Axe is unobtainable by unlocking the achievement associated with it, as it is bugged, and will not give you the "Gimli That Axe!" achievement after earning "Not A War hammer".
