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 afterburn applied to affected enemies lasts for up to 7.5 seconds.

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