Days Gone Fan Creates Their Own Version of Deacon’s Baseball Bat Axe

If you have ever wanted to craft your very own version of a weapon from your favorite video game, then take some inspiration from Twitter user Tj_smitty14 as they take on the Sawblade melee weapon from Days Gone

Days Gone by Sony Bend Studio is still riding the waves in the UK since it released two weeks ago today. The UK sales chart shows that the action-adventure survival horror title is still sitting pretty at the number one spot for the second week in a row, leaving Mortal Kombat 11 and Fifa 19 to play catch up. Due to its increased popularity, Days Gone is inciting some creativity in players who can’t get enough of wielding Deacon’s axe baseball bat and have decided to craft their very own.

Twitter user @Tj_smitty14 states that he has enjoyed his time as protagonist Deacon St. John in Days Gone so much that it inspired him to create his very own real-life Sawblade, as it’s known in the game. If you haven’t had a chance to jump into this hellish apocalyptic world yet – the Sawblade is a melee weapon that Deacon can craft with the right materials that include a Wooden Baseball Bat, Sawblade, and some scrap found all over the map.

Tj_smitty14 has pretty much followed the same procedure in crafting his baseball bat axe – minus scavaging his local area for scrap, of course – and inserted a Sawblade through the top of a wooden bat, securing it with some barbed wire, a bolt and then finishing it by wrapping the handle with some textured tape for that added grip. It’s an excellent piece of craftsmanship and it’s great to see that a video game can bring out so much creative talent in someone – I know who I want on my team when the zombie apocalypse hits, that’s for sure. 

A few days ago, we reported about a player who captured a pretty funny but highly unexpected moment while exploring in Days Gone. While out on a quest, they caught a clip of a Freaker getting hit by lightning during a storm.
