Fallout 76's how to make a build for the Auto Axe

The following build for the Auto Axe requires you to have access to the game's legendary bonuses, but the build may also be beneficial without them by sacrificing some damage. P.E.C.I.A.L stats in Fallout 76 aren't as easy as finding a weapon and putting some stuff together to make it work.

  • Strength 15
  • Perception 1
  • Endurance 8
  • Charisma 9
  • Intelligence 3
  • Agility 11
  • Luck 8

Since the Auto Axe requires Agility and Strength to operate, you may increase your Agility stats by adding bonus S.P.E.C.I.A.L points from legendary perk cards. See the following items for details on the stat allocation.

As the Auto Axe is a two-handed melee weapon, you will want to focus on using the Slugger perks to increase your damage output. Perks like Barbarian and Incisor will help you increase your damage output while still keeping your opponent's armor away from you. Other bonuses that will benefit from the weapon are Nerd Rage, Bloody Mess, and Tenderizer.

You will want the following when it comes to choosing Mutations to get for the build:

  • Twisted Muscles Increased melee damage
  • Adrenal Reaction Increased damage when at low health
  • Bird Bones Decreased Strength and increase Agility

The increased Agility will allow you to use the weapon for a longer period of time. In addition to Mutations, you may want to try the Bloodied legendary enhancement on your Auto Axe. This will dramatically increase your damage.
