Pickaxe is one of the Axes in Nioh 2. This weapon works in conjunction with the Axe Skills skill tree, and usually has good scaling with the Stamina stat. It also scales with Strength and Courage. So if your Build has high Stamina, consider using this Weapon type.


Pickaxe Description

A work tool used primarily for digging and breaking. Due to the pick head's sharpened edges, it can also be employed as an effective weapon. The heavy wear and tear the pickaxe undergoes meant many users threw it away rather than repairing it, so the construction is rather crude.


Location: Where to Find Pickaxe

  • Dropped from any generic loot source.

Pickaxe Notes & Trivia

  • See Blacksmith to understand weapon inheritance and properties.
  • This is one of the few weapons that has Item Drop Rate as an effect.
  • Despite being an Axe, this has the same core stat scaling that Hammers do, but still has the increased melee damage. For those prefer the hammer scaling but still want the increased melee damage this weapon is for you.
