fire axe is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The fire axe is a wooden handled axe with a heavy steel head intended for firefighting use. It has a broad finely sharpened front blade and a sharp pick point on the rear of the head. The long hardwood handle allows for sweeping attacks at reasonable distance and is partially rubber coated to ensure a good grip on the weapon. Originally designed for breaking down walls and doors, this weapon can inflict severe damage to a soft target.
It has a
special attack, which does 50% damage in Mauler V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 more action points, but has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee skill of 50).

It is possible to
execute Mauler outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The fire axe can successfully strike about 995 times from full
condition before breaking.

This weapon and its unique variant "Knock-Knock" can perform the spinning power attack but only deal damage to one target. [verified]
Even with Jury Rigging, this weapon cannot be repaired with pool cues. [verified] While in Zion, the White Legs carrying one will die and the axe will be stuck in mid-air. [verified]
