A Fire Axe is a specially designed axe used by firefighters with a pick-shaped poll end. They are primarily used to knock down doors or windows during a fire, and are usually brightly colored so they can be easily located during an emergency. Despite actually being life-saving and rescue tools for firefighters in real-life, fire axes commonly appear in pop-culture as impromptu weapons.
The Fire Axe is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield Hardline: Getaway expansion. Like the Machete and Sledge Hammer, it is a heavy melee weapon, requiring a short time to pull up and swing the weapon but killing in one hit under all circumstances.
