How to Get Firefighter Axe in Sons of the Forest

The "Firefighter Axe" iconFirefighter Axe has an increased cutting speed and deals more damage then both the "Tactical Axe" iconTactical Axe and "Modern Axe" iconModern Axe which is great for harvesting wood and taking out Cannibals/Animals. However, due to the above benefits its movement speed will be decreased drastically out of all the axes in the game. Additionally, you can use the axe for attacking, but it’s better then you find and use a weapon that’s better equipped for combat, such as Shotgun or a "Katana" iconKatana.

Now the location of the "Firefighter Axe" iconFirefighter Axe is in the Maintenance Hatch A which is located in the northwest portion of the map. However, you’ll need to get your hands on the Shovel otherwise you won’t be able to remove the soil that’s covering the hatch. Unfortunately, the "Shovel" iconShovel is located in the Slingshot Cave and that requires you to have the "Rebreather" iconRebreather and "Rope Gun" iconRope Gun before you can successfully traverse it.
