- The Hand Axe has slightly longer range than the Tool Hammer.
- It deals 30 damage, thus taking 4 hits to kill an enemy at full health.
- It allows the player to mine 6 points of gold rather than 5 points of gold when hitting a Gold Mine.
- It collects 2 Resources per hit instead of 1, but has a slightly slower hit speed than the tool hammer and the sword. (0.4 compared to 0.3)
- The player does not lose movement speed when upgrading to the Hand Axe, so it remains faster than the Sword and Katana.

- You may want to use the Hand Axe to level up quickly.
- Bear in mind, the Daggers are actually better for this than the Hand Axe, and they have superior combat capabilities as well. Still, you may want to choose the Hand Axe for its longer range, which could allow you to gather more resources if they are in close proximity to each other.
- Avoid combat with the Hand Axe, use your speed to run away.
- Pair the Hand Axe with the Crossbow or Repeater Crossbow in order to have an effective Secondary Weapon and a tool for gathering ammo fast.

- In combat, your greatest enemy will be players with the Daggers. The Daggers are the only weapon that can actually catch up with the axe, you will not be able to run. Instead, rely on your superior range to keep the enemy away.
- In any combat situation, your best bet will be to use unconventional methods, such as with the Pit Trap and Spikes.
