|Black Carbon Axe|
Black Carbon Axe (or Combat Axe or BC-Axe) is one of the earliest melee weapons, available in all CF versions.
BC-Axe has better damage rates than the default Knife and can score 2-hit kill anywhere on the body or 1-hit kill in the head (With or without armor). The secondary attack takes a bit longer to execute but can score 1 hit kill anywhere on the body except the legs, where it deals 80 damage. Comparing to the Kukri or Shovel, Combat Axe has faster primary attack rate but slower with secondary and shorter attacking range, plus it also takes longer to equip the weapon, so it's not recommended for quick-switch in Sniper match. BC-Axe is best used to score Headshot with primary attack.
In CF North America, this weapon can be rented temporarily for 1900 ZP for 7 days or more in the item shop and it used to be had permanently for 50 coupons in the black market, as of February patch it was replaced with the Remington and RX4 Storm). This melee weapon is available to CF PH players by buying it for 20 ECoin for 7 days. In CF SEA, this weapon can be purchased permanently for the price of 30,000 GP.
- Available in all CrossFire version.
- The Dual Axes is a special variant available only in Hero Mode X expansion pack, used by Nemesis. Two Axes are held on each hand, with the right one facing sideway. It functions similar to the Dual Kukri.
- BC-Axe has the most re-skin variants among all Melee weapons, followed by Kukri and Field Shovel.
- The BC-Axe is widely thought to be OPed due to its ability to punch through armor and its easy-to-aim-for-the-head primary attack. Experienced players can easily win against other melee players by careful movement and score Headshot, mostly never need to resort to secondary attack. This would be fine with Black Market variants but a normal BC-Axe, easily obtainable via rental, taking on permanent BM Melee is a bit unfair.
