This axe was, er, 'misplaced' by one of my other patrons. She won't be needing it anymore, and it's a weapon of gruesome distinction. Enjoy it.


The Dismemberer is a unique axe in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.


It looks identical to the regular axe, albeit more powerful, and has the ability to gib enemies without the Bloody Mess perk. When an enemy is killed by this weapon, there is an 80% chance to sever all of their limbs, as well as restore 5 action points.


  • Axe, the common variant found throughout Point Lookout.


Name Dmg/att DPS Att/sec Crit mult Crit dmg AP cost Weight Item HP Value
Axe 20 28.6 1.4 x2 30 30 6 500 60
The Dismemberer 25 35.7 1.4 x2 40 30 6 600 55


This axe can be obtained by completing Plik's Safari.


  • When used to mutilate corpses, it automatically blows up the limbs into giblets.
  • If you strike an alien with this in Mothership Zeta, their body will have red blood on it.
  • Oddly, this unique weapon's value (55 caps) is less than its more common counterpart, the regular axe (60 caps).
  • If you strike an ash or goo pile with this weapon, giblets will spurt out of it.


  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png If the player decides to kill Plik upon entry of the Coastal Grotto, The Dismemberer axe may appear on his corpse without completing the quest.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you one hit kill a neutral or good unnamed non-player character and all limbs sever and this gets witnessed, other non-player characters will not turn hostile against you.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Upon activating the quest and killing Plik, The Dismemberer will appear on his body, but ONLY if he is dismembered into giblets upon death—particularly through means of a powerful sneak attack critical with the Bloody Mess perk.
  • PCIcon pc.png On rare occasions, the pieces of the body may remain suspended in the air while the body falls to the ground.
