This Axe makes quite a massacre around it. Whoever crosses your way will be crossed. In many little pieces!

—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Knight's Axe is a Melee weapon introduced in the 16.6.0 update. It can be obtained from the Chess Season Battle Pass.


It is a Chess themed axe that has an area of effect with consecutive explosions. It has good damage, good attack speed, and decent mobility.


It features a silver/green/yellow counterweight with a black shaft and a silver/yellow head with a green edge.


Every time the player swings this weapon, it can attack players in close range. This is because it is a melee weapon. Moreover, this weapon emits a green area of effect that damages players in close range. This area of effect also has consecutive explosions.



  • This is a Melee weapon, so it is best to use it in close-range maps.
  • Use this to mow down heavily armored players due to its high damage.
  • Due to its Area Damage attribute, it is effective for keeping other Melee users away from you.
  • Equip the Berserk Boots and Berserk Cape to maximize mobility speed.
  • It is effective against groups of enemies, as well as other enemies in a line due to the weapon's ability to create additional explosions in front of the initial one.
  • It doesn't have the fastest swing speed, meaning that timing swings when facing against enemies up close.
  • This has a long attack range for a Melee weapon, use that to take out area damage Melee weapon users.
  • Using the Blood Thirst module combo will increase the movement speed making it easier to get kills and move quickly.


  • Pick off its user(s) at long range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotgun weapons decimate users at close range.
  • Do not try to attack its users in a linear position, since the consecutive explosions will finish you off even in a medium distance.
  • When caught in a melee battle, try striking the user first, backpedal, then strike again until the user dies.
  • Try running and jumping while attacking to avoid getting hit by the user's attacks, especially from the area damage attacks.
  • If attacked from behind, escape from the user while firing back at them.
  • Keep jumping to minimize the damage taken when the user attacks.
  • Flank around the user and attack from their sides.
  • Be warned, this Melee weapon is very capable of killing an entire enemy team that’s at full health, should you know how to use it right.
