Coldkill is an exceptional unique Hatchet from Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

Like its name implies, Coldkill has a large affinity for Cold, bestowing bonuses to both Cold Resist and adding a sizable amount of Cold Damage. Although not as effective against enemies that are immune to Cold, it is useful for its ability to slow enemies; however, this also makes it less effective in Nightmare and Hell difficulties, where enemy slow durations are shorter.

When coupled with other attack speed items, due to its increased attack speed and cold damage and its ability to freeze enemies with ice blast, Coldkill is a great melee weapon for both damaging and slowing down enemies.

Higher level players may want to use Nord's Tenderizer, a unique Truncheon with similar cold-related attributes.
