"gathers resources at a higher rate"
- The Hand Axe is available at age 2 as an alternative to the Short Sword, Polearm, Bat, Daggers, and Stick.
- The Hand Axe has a 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.
- When the Hand Axe gathers 3,000 resources, it turns into the Gold Hand Axe, after 7,000 resources, the Diamond Hand Axe, and after 12,000 resources, the Ruby Hand Axe.
- You may want to use the Hand Axe to level up quickly.
- Bear in mind that 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 from an enemy.
- 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. Also, if you are a good player, you can easily fiend off opponents with the repeater crossbow.
- Upgrade to the Great Axe as soon as possible unless you intend to use the Crossbow or Repeater Crossbow.
- Choose the Hand Axe if you plan on doing a lot of building. Stick would be better, but you might choose Hand Axe so your weapon does enough damage to actually help in combat.
- In combat, your greatest enemy will be players with the Daggers. You will not be able to run away from players with the Daggers, as they will have better movement speed. 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.
- Since the Hand Axe truly is inferior in combat, it may be a good idea to get the Monkey Tail and rely on a ranged weapon and/or Pit Traps and Spikes.
- Due to its low DPS, the Hand Axe can be vulnerable to Pit Traps.
- Polearm and Katana are good counters to the Hand Axe due to their long range.
- If going against a Hand Axe user, take care because if they have a Musket as a Secondary Weapon, you should watch out.
- The Hand Axe allows players to be fast. Always try to keep a Pit Trap in front of you if you have a slower weapon like Katana or Polearm.
- If chasing someone with the Hand Axe, use Daggers or Mc Grabby to catch up and kill them.
The Golden Hand Axe is the golden version of the Hand Axe but with a sharper and sleeker axehead and a rounder back. It does 33 damage to enemy players and structures and is only succeeded by the Diamond Hand Axe in power. No changes in the swing rate or user speed are created beyond that.
The Diamond Hand Axe is the Diamond version of the Hand Axe with extremely sharp edges and stone covering over part of the diamond section. It does 35.4 damage to enemy players and structures and is not challenged in strength by the other previous variants. No changes in the swing rate or user speed are created beyond that.
The Ruby Hand Axe has three blades: one large curved red blade on the front, a small pointed blade sticking out from the top, facing slightly downward, and an arrow-like blade on the tool's backside. The handle is dark black, and there is a gold ore under the big blade.
- In the early stages of MooMoo.io, the Hand Axe originally had been nerfed to decrease movement speed. This debuff has since been removed due to other early updates.
- Despite the Hand Axe being larger than the Short Sword, the player moves faster with the Hand Axe equipped than the Short Sword.
- The Hand Axe can be upgraded to the Great Axe at age 8.
- Ever since the release of Daggers, Axes in the game were mostly considered obsolete and useless.
- It kills people just as fast as tool hammer does unless you have a diamond or ruby version. It has a higher DPS than Polearm.
