Fornite: Battle Royale has released its new Chapter, and most of the players are waiting for the upcoming pickaxe skins for you to mine, chop trees, or destroy walls on houses around the map, as well as your opponent. But you don’t need to wait for the latest pickaxe skins, there’s a broad range of available skins to choose from, and you can earn them in the Battle Pass or by purchasing them with V-bucks.

The pickaxe is an essential part and cosmetic item of the game. Without it, there would be no Fortnite: Battle Royale. It would be too boring or lame if you play all day while using the same old default pickaxe over and over again. The skins of every pickaxe are unique and you can even have matching outfits. This spices up the game and gives it more tone and life to your character. Each pickaxe skin is incomparable to other pickaxe skins, and they are all badass in their own way.

So, we ranked up the best pickaxe skins from Top 10 to Top 1 since the beginning of Season 1.

Fortnite’s Top Pickaxe Skins

TOP 10 – Studded Axe

The Studded Axe, or what’s so-called the Quiet Axe. For it doesn’t make a lot of noise when you smash it through anything, so most pro gamers use it. Its almost noiseless sound is what makes it unique from the other pickaxes, this is the biggest reason why pro gamers use it.

The second reason is because of its clean look. Not too big and flashy like the other pickaxe skins. It also makes only really quiet ‘bling’ sound, which can’t be heard almost by anyone else and also doesn’t make a sound while equipping.

To sum it up, this pickaxe is the best for you if you want a clean, neat look with an almost silent sound. It’s a simple yet elegant pickaxe.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 800 V-Bucks.

TOP 9 – Raider’s Revenge

Wrapped in rusty barbed wire, and ready to settle the score. A post-apocalyptic look that you will like if you’re into this kind of style. And will no doubt scare your enemy when they see you swinging it.

Sadly, it’s no longer available, and it’s doubtful it’s ever coming back — Press F for that. But still, let’s not lose hope. Maybe one day it will come back, who knows.

This pickaxe was loved by everyone when Season 1 started. There are still upcoming pickaxe skins that are similar to Raider’s Revenge, but its rusty look will never replace this pickaxe.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 1,500 V-Bucks.

Fortnite’s Top Pickaxe Skins TOP 8 – Skull Sickle

The Skull Sickle will transform the player’s pickaxe into a cool looking spectral-like sickle that looks extremely sharp and scary.

Despite the name of the item, the sickle does not have any skulls or skeleton decals. Instead, it features a sleek-looking blue metal edge that emits a ghostly blue aura — seeing this in the lobby, really catches your eye.

Using this harvesting tool skin will not grant any added functionality or benefit to the player – it’s part of the Skull Squad Set, along with the Skull Trooper Outfit. This skin was released in preparation for the 2018 Halloween.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 1,200 V-Bucks.

The good old AC/DC. From the looks of it, it should electrify your enemy. But sadly not, it’s just an effect and won’t affect the damage dealt and the speed in which you harvest resources. It’s just a simple pickaxe skin with a coil of electricity.

A few patches have updated this pickaxe skin. The audio of it has been lowered on Patch Update (July 24, 2018). So, you don’t need to worry about hearing any ‘zip zap’ from your enemy. It was also disabled on September 11, 2019, due to damage glitch the same with star wand.

How to obtain: This pickaxe is a premium tier 63 Battle Pass reward. You have to purchase the Battle Pass and level it up to tier 63.

Fortnite’s Top Pickaxe Skins TOP 6 – Trusty No.2

Epic and weird at the same time. If you look closer at it, you’ll see a pencil at the back and a knife at the front. If you merge them together, and walla, a pickaxe!

With its simple and black style, it fits well with any other character skins that have the same color. Swinging it around won’t make too much noise like the other pickaxe skins. Everyone loves the style of it, not too big, not too noisy. One reason is because of the pencil at the back, and the pencil is the reason why this gets the 6th spot.

How to obtain: It can be obtained from the Season 3 Battle Pass at Tier 79.

TOP 5 – Vision

A spiky shovel with an eye in it. Now you know why it’s called Vision. It was released on 12 January 2019, and it’s still available, but it tends to vanish quite often, so if you miss it, don’t worry, it’ll be back.

Should we call this a pickaxe or a shovel? To be safe, let’s just call it Vision. Its creepy looking eye in the middle makes it that much more disturbing. Some say the eye closes when you swing it, and by swinging it continuously makes it dizzy. The sound effect is nothing new; it’s the normal sound, not too noisy, not too silent.

It matches best with its set, of course. But it can also be paired with other sets with the same color – it looks Medieval themed if you look closer – making it scarier.

How to obtain: It can be purchased from the Item Shop for 800 V-Bucks when listed.

TOP 4 – Stellar Axe

The magnificent and starry pickaxe, which was forged by the galaxy itself. This pickaxe is the winner if you’re talking about its glow. Wielding it makes you an extraordinary player in the lobby, but only by looks. It has a shining star around it and a dark and blue shade indicating the galaxy, making it so stunning and unique.

Nothing can describe this pickaxe, that will do it justice. The sound of it every time you swing, mine, chop, is normal like the others. However, every update seems to change the pickaxe’s sound effects.

How to obtain: It can be obtained through Samsung Galaxy Promotions. It can also be obtained along with the Galaxy skin by purchasing Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Fortnite’s Top Pickaxe Skins TOP 3 – Rainbow Smash

Of course, you waited for this. There’s no way this would be taken out of the Top 10. Used by most streamers to date, especially with its cool feature that lights up every time you get a kill. It can be seen in every part of the Internet, as Rainbow Smash became a hit on YouTube by YouTubers making fun of it.

Cosplayers who create the pickaxe along with the matching costume are absolutely brilliant, more so if they add the awesome lighting effects too! Fan-art is everywhere of this pickaxe, so that’s why when you see it, you know why it probably seems familiar.

This pickaxe resembles the rainbow and the sunshine making it look like a kid toy. But even if it looks like a toy, it can chop you down.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 1,500 V-Bucks.

TOP 2 – Candy Axe

Pretty sure everyone will use this pickaxe this Christmas. Candy, with a pointy tip and Christmas lights around it, makes it cool and scary at the same time. This Holiday, the candy pickaxe will dominate the lobby, glowing it’s Christmas lights everywhere. Candy Axe was one of the more sought-after holiday cosmetics. You’ll be seeing this tasty candy everywhere this Christmas.

The great thing about this pickaxe is that the lights grow brighter as you get more eliminations! It was one of the original “reactive” cosmetics. It returned to the item shop again for Christmas in 2018. So, let’s hope it returns this Christmas too.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 1,500 V-Bucks. Might come available this Christmas.

TOP 1 – Reaper

The undefeated Pickaxe – the one that dominates every pickaxe ranking. It’s in a unique situation of being almost ubiquitous on promotional Fortnite: Battle Royale materials but rarely seen in-game. One of the most sought-after Harvesting Tools in the game.

The Reaper is a rare pickaxe skin that will turn the default harvesting tool into a big scythe with the obvious reference to the Grim Reaper’s Scythe. With its minimal and simple design, with an almost silent sound every time you swing or slice up enemies, these are the reasons why everyone loves it. Due to its rarity, everyone’s waiting every day for news saying that the Reaper is back.

How to obtain: It can be bought from Cash Shop with 800 V-Bucks.

That’s all! The Top 10 Pickaxe skins in Fortnite: Battle Royale! The ranking is based on how many players liked the skin since the beginning of Season 1. So, what do you think about the ranking? There’s a lot of pickaxe skins out there, so probably this ranking will change in the future since there’s a new Chapter of Fortnite: Battle Royale! So stay tuned!
