Throwing axes are seldom used by opponents in the game. This means that axe throwers are completely dependent on stores selling these weapons. These weapons can be stacked to a maximum of 10. A stack of 10 throwing axes has a weight of 50 lbs; keep that in mind. This is also a one-handed weapon, so it can be used in combination with any shield. This weapon appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II. Throwing axes are sold at most weapon stores.
Note: In Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition the Throwing Axe may also be wielded in melee, where it does slashing damage.
|“||The hand axe or throwing axe is also known as a hatchet. The axe blade has a sharp steel tip, counterbalanced by a pointed fluke. The short handle has a point on the bottom and the head may have a spike on the top.||”|
