Demon Hunter Axemen, also known simply as Axemen, were a Human Demon Hunter enemy featured in Soul Reaver 2. Demon Hunter Axemen were armed with a large two-handed axe and were encountered in the Demon infested Era following Blood Omen.


Demon Hunter Axemen were human troops of the Demon hunter faction, encountered by Raziel in the Demon -infested Era following Blood Omen . They wore heavy black and broze metal armor and helmets and wielded heavy two-handed axes [Soul Reaver 2].

Demon hunter axemen were mid-range fighters, competent in close-quarters combat, but with a greater range than their swordsmen allies. Axemen wielded heavy axes, giving them powerful, but ultimately slow attacks. Along with their offensive power, Axemen were also defensively quite strong, regularly blocking attacks and able to withstand a lot of damage.[Soul Reaver 2 manual][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)][1] Demon hunter axemen were often encountered along with other Demon hunter enemies and Demons[Soul Reaver 2].

Raziel first encountered Demon hunter axemen (and other demon hunters) in the Demon-infested Sarafan Stronghold shortly after he emerged from its Time-streaming chamber in the Post-Blood Omen era. They would frequently be encountered throughout that era, particularly in the Sarafan Stronghold, Pillars area, Swamp, Uschtenheim and Mountain areas[Soul Reaver 2].
