Resident Evil 7 is a return to the classic survival-horror formula that defined the series in its early years.
While it may have veered off towards action in recent entries, the Resident Evil franchise remains as one of the most loved and respected in gaming.
Resident Evil 7 has kickstarted a new generation for the series, bringing about an exciting new direction, perspective and story.
While the game isn’t anywhere near as action-focused as more recent entries, weapons still form an important part of the experience.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to find the axe, which is one of the first weapons in the game that you’ll come across.
The Axe in Resident Evil 7 is easily acquired. At the start of the game while in Guest House 1F, you’ll grab the axe during a sequence while engaged in a battle with Mia. This is the first fight with the character, and the axe is unmissable. At this point, the weapon will be added to your inventory.
Best Strategy For Using The Axe
Use the guard bottom when wielding the axe to block it against oncoming attacks. Once the enemy staggers about and has been stunned, holding down the aim button and then tap the attack button to perform a power attack. Be sure to put your guard back up to repeat the process once you make a hit on the enemy.
