Nothing goes better with a character skin in Fortnite than an excellent pickaxe or harvesting tool. There are hundreds to collect in Battle Royale, each with their own unique take on the weapon type. For example, there are some in the form of basic housewares, as some are even themed after items from other popular video game franchises. As a result, figuring out what your next pickaxe should be can be difficult. Hoping to make your decision a little easier, here are the top 10 pickaxes and harvesting tools currently available in Fortnite, in alphabetical order.
Pickaxes originally from other game franchises tend to lose some of their detail when turned into Fortnite cosmetics. Luckily, Aloy’s spear is a runaway. It shares the same frightening size, sharp metal tip, and barrage of colorful feathers as the Horizon series. Of course, it also matches the outfits of the Aloy skins. The pickaxe has only been in the item shop in seven rotations this year, but since it’s been in more than 20 rotations in 2021, you can expect Aloy’s Spear to return soon.
Candy Ax is a piece of candy goodness sculpted into a damage-dealing melee tool. Instead of being a simple candy cane, this pickaxe is wrapped in green cords with colorful Christmas lights. Those who possess it can even make the lights shine brighter with each elimination they achieve. As a holiday-themed cosmetic, you can see Candy Ax in the shop every December for 1,500 V-Bucks.
The Symbiote Slasher came very close to making this list, but since it can only be used on Venom, the Chaos Scythe is an excellent replacement. That’s because the black goo it’s covered with constantly shifts and gravitates around the axe, making it one of the most terrifying and memorable harvesting tools ever created. It’s also relatively cheap, with Reaper hitting the shop about once a month for 800 V-Bucks.
Believe it or not, there is only one harvesting tool that isn’t a sword or an axe. The Hulk Smashers take the form of toy Hulk Gloves, which instead allow players to swing their fists to destroy structures and deal damage to opponents. Owners can even switch to his Hulkbuster style, which is designed to resemble Iron Man’s hands. The Marvel item costs 1,200 V-Bucks and has appeared in the Item Shop over 50 times since the end of 2020. So it’s safe to say that the gloves will be back later this year.
It may not come with upgrades in battle royale, though God of War’s Leviathan Axe is still billed as the greatest of them all. Yes, the tool looks similar to any other simple axe. However, its importance can be attributed to its Norse engravings, as it emits a blue mystical light at all times. The Item Shop last stocked the weapon in March 2021 for 1,000 V-Bucks, but with the release of God of War Ragnarok on November 9th, it’s possible that cold spell will end soon.
If you want some luck on your side, it might be worth getting your hands on Pot O’ Gold. The St. Patrick’s Day item features a three-leaf clover as a staff, while at the end of its rainbow blade is a pot of gold. Better still, sprinting with the ax leaves a sparkling trail in its wake for a short time. Pot O’ Gold normally hits the store on March 16th for 1,200 V-Bucks and will rotate for at least two more days.
Reaper is a classic, going back to one of the very first pickaxe skins. Originally released on Halloween 2017, Reaper was an instant fan favorite thanks to its simple design and pleasant harvesting sound. Despite only appearing in 31 item shop rotations, the Reaper is almost always available in October and November for the price of 800 V-Bucks.
Directly from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Riot Control Baton is a white baton with electrical conductors and rows of flashing red lights. Once swung, the conductors separate and are engulfed by electrical waves. As great as it is to behold, Riot Control Baton is an exceedingly rare cosmetic. Before the 1,200 V-Buck ax returned in May 2022, it spent a full two years out of the store.
Chapter 3 Season 2 didn’t deliver as much content as other seasons, but the Battle Pass made up for it with items like the notable Spellwork Scimitar. Modeled after the Sword of Vishanti, the Scimitar is a Marvel Series cosmetic that sports a translucent blade with bright red outlines. Those with the Conjure Weapon Emote can even choose to switch to the Spellwork Scimitar by crafting it from thin air, much like Doctor Strange can.
Getting an elimination with a pickaxe can be a thrilling feat, but that feeling is certainly enhanced when you’re doing it with a pencil. This is possible if you use the Trusty No. Use 2, a standard black pickaxe with the instrument stuck in its front headstock. Still, it’s one of the game’s most valuable cosmetics, having been exclusive to the Season 3 Battle Pass back in 2018.
