Grognak's Axe: Medium Speed, really?

  • June 2

    So I had seen an article a while back that suggested that Grognak's Axe, while labeled as MEDIUM speed, was actually a SLOW rated weapon.

    Today I did a little testing.  The following are based on attacks made in a ten second window.

    Grognak's Axe (MED): 6 (58 DAM)

    Serrated Machete (MED): 7 (56 DAM)

    Big Jim (MED): 7 (51 DAM)

    Bladed Baseball Bat (SLOW): 6 (65 DAM)

    *Damage is listed as weapons are modified with Tier 2 Blacksmith maximum damage mod.

     

    So, just a quick review seems to support the findings that the Axe is mislabeled as MED and is, in fact, a SLOW rated weapon.  The damage listed is in line with the other MED damage weapons but the speed is in line with SLOW rated weapons.

    Silly Bethesda, always overlooking simple errors. Thank you for bringing this to light! Were you able to do any testing on weapon weight effecting speed?

    No.  I was leaving that for the detective.  LOL  This test came up while using the Axe in my Predator play.
