Ice Axe cannot be put on back like other melee weapons
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Unlike other melee weapons (Sledgehammer, Crowbar) the Ice Axe does not act like a melee weapon - it cannot be placed on the back as a melee weapon.


Legacy ID
No Bug
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Find ice axe
  2. Drag onto back (as you would with a melee weapon)
  3. Ice axe will not attach to back
Additional Information

Unsure if this is a bug, or intentional. The ice axe is smaller than other melee weapons so it may not be truly "melee" (attachable to the back). The 0.53 update announced the addition of a melee ice axe, which may be confusing for players.

Hi 404Cat and thanks for the feedback!
This is indeed intended, as melee weapons which are held in one hand are not supposed to go on the back.
