The hatchet can be used as both a Weapon and a tool. It consumes hunger ('food' bar in lower right corner of the screen) when swung. It is a functionally improved version of the Stone Hatchet as it deals more damage to players & animals, and gathers more from wood piles as well as Rocks.


As a WeaponEdit

The hatchet is a melee weapon, capable of killing unarmored human players in four hits. As a melee weapon, it has a disadvantage compared to firearms. However, sprinting and zig-zagging toward an enemy with ranged weapons will help close the distance while simultaneously making it difficult for the enemy to aim.

As a ToolEdit

The hatchet can be used to gather resources. Repeatedly hitting TreesWood Piles, Rocks, and fallen animals will give you their resources. It has a major advantage gathering resources from animals compared to the Pickaxe.

It can also be used to break down structures such as Wood Storage BoxesSleeping BagsCamp FiresWood BarricadesWood Shelters, and Wood Doors. 200 hits will deconstruct Wood Doors. (The Pickaxe is also capable of demolishing these objects/structures).


The Hatchet is made with:
