Idk which I like more. This or the katana pack. I've mostly used the cleavers instead of the axes, but they seem to function like better short katanas

Axes don't confer bonus damage to sectoids like swords do?

This mod cool to use then?

@Tsunamy
I don't have any crashes with cleave, so currently no idea whats the problem. Can you link a log file of a crash here? It could be a mod conflict. So a test with no other mods but the axe mod would also be helpful.

So, I think I found a bug.

Just got the Arc Blade purchased, which unlocks the T2 Axes, but one of my rangers (haven't checked the other one or two that had an axe on) still has the +Aim -Mobility modifications of the Battle Axe, even if I give her an Arc Blade.

@Musashi Bug report: In the file "XComGame.int", the text for the fields "AbilityDescName" and "BriefSummary" are erroneously switched around for the Combat Cleaver.

The AbilityDescName reads "Called 'The Butcher' by our troops the Combat Cleaver is designed to do maximum damage to soft targets."

This should be: "Combat Cleaver".


The BriefSummary reads "Combat Cleaver"

This should be: "Called 'The Butcher' by our troops the Combat Cleaver is designed to do maximum damage to soft targets."

In addition, within the same file, all instances of the word "perform" are mis-spelled "perfom". A simple find --> replace in a text editor can remedy the typo.

+1 on cosmetic only -version. Or even better, could you add options to mod menu?
Cosmetic only, without any extra abilities or anything?

@voriel I just ran into the same problem. Uninstalling the mod fixes the soldier stats but reinstalling it just brings back the issue. It's a shame too cause I was really enjoying the mod up until that point.

Any chance for a cosmetic-only upload?
A config file is all well and good, but having the wrong stats show ingame drives me up the wall.

Every time i use the Cleave ability my game crashes. Is it just me or is there anyone else with this same problem?
