The Ice Axe is a weapon available in the Half-Life 2 Leak. It was removed prior to release of the retail version of the game.


The Ice Axe is a melee weapon with attributes similar to the crowbar. It has a primary and secondary attack, consisting of quick swings, and a larger swing. Both hits do the same amount of damage, however the larger swing may have been intended to do more damage at a slower rate.

The iceaxe deals the same amount of damage as the crowbar and stunstick, however it has greater attack range and a faster speed, making it one of the most effective melee weapons in the game.

Missing Texture

A VMT pointing to the file "Handleview" exists in the texture directory but no VTF is available. The name  suggests a viewplane projected texture may have existed for the model at some stage, much like other view-projected texture mapped weapons in the game.
