As of now, no files related to the Throwable Axe other than the model and textures can be found and all we know is that the weapon will be the first of its kind in Fortnite.

The axe has a short handle which is covered in popular Fortnite sprays, including Potato Aim, GG Smiley, X Mark, and more. A small charm of the Kit Outfit can also be seen at the bottom of the axe, which could be something we will see as an option for weapons in the future.

We’ll keep you updated if any additional files are found for the Throwable Axe.
