The executioner's hack was a melee weapon which saw use during the Galactic Civil War, sometime after the Battle of Yavin. A massive axe, it was a favorite weapon among operatives of the Black Sun, a criminal organization active at the time. Although it was balanced as a two-handed weapon, its low weight gave it the possibility to be used as a one-handed one. Black Sun operatives active within the Death Watch bunker on the forest moon of Endor were known to carry schematics of the weapon.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The executioner's hack appeared in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided,[1] which was released on June 26, 2003[2] and shut down on December 15, 2011.[3] The weapon also appears in weapon indices in two strategy guides released for the game, Star Wars Galaxies: The Total Experience: Prima Official Game Guide and Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Guide: Prima Official Game Guide.[4][5] The executioner's hack was made from a schematic which can be looted from enemies in the Death Watch bunker on Endor. The schematic could then be taken to a Munitions Trader who crafted the weapon. Although its in-game description states it could be used as both a two-handed and one-handed weapon, it was only usable by the player as a two-handed weapon.[1]
