Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

We have recently covered Fortnite’s rarest gliders, but that’s not the only type of cosmetic that has existed since the early days of the battle royale. This time we are going to show you the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite.

While there is no full count on how many pickaxes are available in Fortnite, it would be a safe bet that it’s approaching 200 if it hasn’t already crested that particular hill. Due to the current Chapter 3 Season 2 being the 20th overall season of Fortnite, there has been plenty of time for a widespread release of pickaxes since the battle royale’s release.

For this list, it’s impossible to know for sure which pickaxes are truly the most purchased/owned at any point, but thanks to our friends at Pro Game Guides, we have a clear picture of how often they have been seen on the Item Shop.

It’s time to dig through your collection to see if you own one of these highly elusive pickaxes.

20. Stumpy

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Stumpy Rare Pickaxe

Our first pickaxe, Stumpy, is from Chapter 1 Season 8. It hasn’t been seen for 1,052 days as of its third Item Shop appearance on June 10, 2019.

Stumpy doesn’t have a set to belong to but definitely, isn’t the only tree/plant-themed pickaxe there is in the game.

19. Relax Axe

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Relax Axe Rare Pickaxe

The Relax Axe was first planted on the Item Shop in Chapter 1 Season 8 on April 17, 2019. It has returned only twice since then, with the last time being June 9, 2019, which was 1,054 days ago.

The Relax Axe doesn’t belong to a set, which is surprising, considering it looks like it belongs with our previous entry.

18. Shrapnel

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Shrapnel Uncommon Pickaxe

The Shrapnel follows suit with the Prickly Axe, also being last seen 1,057 days ago on June 6, 2019. However, the Shrapnel pickaxe has only been available one other time since it first emerged onto the Item Shop on April 24, 2019.

The Shrapnel is part of the Short Fuse set and is notable for being a pickaxe only available for purchase from a set of battle pass items.

17. Prickly Axe

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Prickly Axe Rare Pickaxe

The Prickly Axe is a pickaxe that has been seen only three times in total since it first hit the store. First available on April 4, 2019, this pickaxe hasn’t been seen in 1,057 days since June 6, 2019.

The Prickly Axe isn’t part of a set, and no, the cactus barbs don’t add any extra damage.

16. T-Square

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

T-Square Uncommon Pickaxe

Like many on this list, the T-Square pickaxe was first available in Season 1 Chapter 7. It returned once a month until May 2019 and hasn’t been seen in the last 1,074 days.

The T-Square is part of the nerdy Calculator Crew set that is mostly math and technology-themed.

15. Crossroads

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Crossroads Uncommon Pickaxe

The Crossroads pickaxe has been missing for the last 1,083 days. It was last seen on May 11, 2019, after releasing on Feb. 24, 2019 in Season 1 Chapter 7.

While it might seem that the Crossroads has a dystopian theme to it, it’s actually part of the Robo Rebels set that is just about punk robots.

14. Widow’s Bite

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Widow's Bite Marvel Series Pickaxe

The Widow’s Bite is the rarest Marvel Series item there is when it comes to when it was last seen. It was originally released on April 25, 2019, in the middle of Chapter 1 Season 8, and has not been seen in the last 1,087 days as of May 6, 2019.

This particular pickaxe is part of the Avengers set that includes both Black Widow and Captain America-related cosmetics.

13. High Seas

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

High Seas Rare Pickaxe

The High Seas slipped onto the Item Shop on April 10, 2019. While it came back six days later, that was the last time it was seen, 1,109 days ago.

The High Seas belongs to the Scallywags set that features all sorts of pirate-themed cosmetics.

12. Moonbone

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Moonbone Rare Pickaxe

The Moonbone was last found in the Item Shop on April 1, 2019, which was 1,122 days ago. It was first released on March 31, 2019 during Chapter 1 Season 8.

This pickaxe is actually named for the Moonbone set it comes from, with all voodoo-inspired cosmetics.

11. Bottom Feeder

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Bottom Feeder Epic Pickaxe

The Bottom Feeder has the honor of being the other of only two Epic rarity pickaxes on this list. It was released on Jan. 25, 2018 in the middle of Chapter 1 Season 2. It was last seen 1,124 days ago, on March 31, 2019.

This pickaxe isn’t affiliated with any set, which is weird considering the pirate/nautical set that includes the High Seas.

10. A.X.E.

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

A.X.E. Rare Pickaxe

The A.X.E. first launched on the Item Shop on Nov. 20, 2018, during Season 1 Chapter 6. While it was available a year after, in March, it hasn’t been seen since then for 1,150 days.

The A.X.E. is part of the A.I.M. set, and is just like Shrapnel, in that it is also the only Item Shop cosmetic from its set — the rest were battle pass items.

9. Angular Axe

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Angular Axe Uncommon Pickaxe

The Angular Axe was available for just one day after releasing on March 3, 2019. It has been 1,151 days since it was last seen.

The Angular Axe is part of the Counterattack set that actually includes a recolor that was only available through a promotion.

8. Flimsie Flail

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Flimsie Flail Rare Pickaxe

The Flimsie Flail first hit the Item Shop on March 2, 2019, during Chapter 1 Season 8. Similar to the Angular Axe above, it was also available for just 24 hours and hasn’t been seen once since then in the following 1,152 days.

The Flimsie Flail is part of the Hot Air set that includes the Breezy emote we listed as one of the rarest emotes.

7. Empire Axe

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Empire Axe Rare Pickaxe

The Empire Axe was first introduced in 2018 during Chapter 1 Season 3. While it has been seen in the Item Shop on 20 separate days, it went dormant and hasn’t been seen for 1,155 days since Feb. 28, 2019.

The Empire Axe is yet another pickaxe with a unique look that isn’t part of a set.

6. Armature

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Armature Uncommon Pickaxe

The Armature pickaxe was first seen in Chapter 1 Season 7 in January 2019. It has shown up in the shop once since then, and that was 1,155 days ago on Feb. 27, 2019.

The Armature is part of the Tech Ops set that also includes the Brute Force pickaxe. While the Brute Force didn’t make the cut for our list, it has still not been seen for more than 900 days.

5. Tooth Pick

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Tooth Pick Rare Pickaxe

The Tooth Pick was first available on Dec. 14, 2017 in Chapter 1 Season 1. Unlike the Raider’s Revenge, it has since hit the Item Shop again, but the last time was in January 2019, 1,183 days ago.

There is no set containing the Tooth Pick. Its caveman appearance is unique and not tied to any other cosmetics.

4. Turbine

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Turbine Rare Pickaxe

The Turbine pickaxe was released on Sept. 30, 2018, during Chapter 1 Season 6. It was last available 1,232 days ago

.The Turbine is part of the Aviation Age set that also includes four separate outfits.

3. Drumbeat

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Drumbeat Uncommon Pickaxe

In terms of the rarest pickaxe when it comes to its last appearance in the Item Shop — without being tied to any sort of battle pass — it’s the Drumbeat, which is part of the Flower Power set.

It was first released Sept. 2, 2018 in Chapter 1 Season 5, and was last available 1,332 days ago.

2. Axe of Champions

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Axe of Champions Epic Pickaxe

The Axe of Champions isn’t a pickaxe that just any Fortnite fan could’ve had the fortune of picking up. It isn’t exactly collectible the same way the others on this list are. No, the Axe of Champions is only available to one player at a time.

The winner of each season’s Fortnite Championship Series gets to use the pickaxe for the following season. This pickaxe is certainly rare but not in a collectible sense.

1. Raider’s Revenge

Rarest Pickaxes in Fortnite

Raider's Revenge Epic Pickaxe

Even considering the very limited supply of the Axe of Champions, this is the rarest pickaxe from a collectible standpoint, so it counts for more.

The Raider’s Revenge was offered way back in Chapter 1 Season 1. Seeing as the battle pass system wasn’t quite as fleshed out as it is today, and the game was in its infancy, very few people had the chance to purchase this pickaxe when the opportunity arose.

The Raider’s Revenge pickaxe has not been available in any form since its Season 1 debut, making it the rarest pickaxe in the game.

That’s it — everything you need to know for the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite.

This week in Fortnite was also week six for the Resistance questline and the newest Covert Ops quests have unlocked. We have guides for both.
