The “Modern Axe” is a superior variant of the default axe, and is the most efficient axe available when chopping trees. This axe is found adjacent to the Main Cannibal Village, this cannibal hotspot is located in the southeast of the map (as shown in the image to the right). A recommended tactic for navigating the surface is to keep-in-mind that the snowy mountains are positioned in the north of the map.
