The Hatchet is a weapon in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V. It is exclusive for players who have played GTA V on last-gen consoles and transferred to next-gen consoles and/or PC.
The Hatchet is a small, sharp melee weapon that's capable of dealing high damage (two hits to kill), similarly to the Knife and the Antique Cavalry Dagger. It's appearance is similar to that of the Fire Axe's, but smaller and quicker. Blood will appear on blade of the Hatchet after hitting a pedestrian or other players.
The animations for the Hatchet will differ between third and first person modes. In third person, the player will hit any area of the body, hitting the head while in stealth mode. In first person, the player will only hit the back of the enemy, even while in stealth mode. A possible reason for this is that hitting an enemy in first person would show more of the gruesome damage inflicted.
