The auto axe is a cut melee weapon in Fallout 76, added to the game files during the Wastelanders update cycle.
Made by the H&H Tools Company, the auto axe is an industrial saw repurposed as a deadly melee weapon.
Weapon mods could only be crafted if the corresponding plan was known. The IDs of the mod plans suggest they would be purchased from gold vendors.
The editor ID of the auto axe plan suggests that the auto axe would be available after completing the main Wastelanders questline, bought with gold bullion from one of the gold vendors.
