The Sharpened Volcano Fragment is a promotional melee weapon for the Pyro. It is an obsidian axe with glowing lava flowing along the blade's extreme edges.

This weapon deals 20% less damage than the standard Fire Axe, but ignites enemies upon contact.

The Sharpened Volcano Fragment was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-ordered RIFT on Steam before March 1, 2011.
