Krieg's Buzz Axe is Krieg's Default Melee Weapon and the weapon used in his Action Skill. Unlike normal Psychos' buzz axes which are a small dull sawblade attached to a small metal rod, Krieg's Buzz Axe is a functional toothed sawblade with a hollowed out back, attached to a two handed axe handle which may have been broken into pieces and fashioned back together with electrical tape. As Krieg progresses in certain skill trees, his Buzz Axe receives various visual upgrades depending on skill selection.
