The '''Ice Axe''' is a weapon cut from ''Half-Life 2''. It can be found in the playable Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak.

==Overview==

*The Ice Axe was probably to be first found in the ''Borealis (cut ship)|Borealis'' chapter.WC mappack

*It was to work exactly like Gordon's trademark crowbar and hit at a faster speed, but was significantly weaker in damage.

==Fate==

*Too similar to the crowbar, the Ice Axe was caught in the cut of the ''Borealis'' chapter and the other Arctic levels.
*According to ''Half-Life 2 Episode Three'' concept art, it may make a return in the next ''Half-Life'' game, at least as a tool used by NPCs.

==Trivia==
*In the ''Half-Life 2'' files, several texture files for HUD weapon icons can be found, most of which still containing the icons for almost all of the cut weapons. The Ice Axe is among them.

*The Ice Axe is available in the mod ''Missing Information'', in the ''Borealis'' chapter.

*As seen in the ''Half-Life 2'' sound files, the crowbar swing sound is named "iceaxe_swing1.wav".
