From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Hive Axe is melee weapon that is normally carried by Darkblades.
Wielded by the hulking Darkblade-variants of the Knights, the Hive Axe is an extremely deadly weapon for close-quarters combat, dealing significant damage akin to a Slam ability. Unless having the proper shielding, the Darkblades could kill a Guardian with one strike.
