Made by the H&H Tools Company,[1] the auto axe is an industrial saw repurposed as a deadly melee weapon.

Obtained through Expeditions.[clarification needed] It is currently only available in the Public Test Server, and cannot be obtained in the live version of the game.


  • The auto axe first appeared in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.
  • The editor ID of the old auto axe plan suggests that the auto axe would originally have been available after completing the main Wastelanders questline, bought with gold bullion from one of the gold vendors. This was scrapped in favor of its appearance with Expeditions: The Pitt.
