This is an article on Harvesting Tools as a Cosmetic Item. For the Harvesting Tool used as a weapon, see: Harvesting Tool (Weapon)

Harvesting Tools (also known as Pickaxes) are tools used for gathering resources in Fortnite. They exist in Save the World as well as in Battle Royale, performing a similar function. While pickaxes can be used as a weapon, dealing 20 damage per hit, they are better used to gather resources for building. In Chapter 2: Season 1, certain harvesting tools got a fresh look, as well as gliders.

One difference that the Battle Royale pickaxe has from Save The World is that players can purchase cosmetic harvesting tools for it, making it look and sound different from the Default Pickaxe. These cosmetic outfits offer no advantage in game play, same with weapons and outfits. Season 9 also has introduced Dual-wielded pickaxes, a pair of small harvesting tools that you swing one by one. As of Update 10.20, these cosmetic harvesting tools can also be used in Save The World. Also if you purchase Save The World as of now, you get the 7 different Save The World Pickaxes by upgrading your pickaxe in Save The World.

Harvesting tools are generally available either through purchase with V-Bucks in the item shop or as a reward from achieving tiers of the seasons of the Battle Pass. They can occasionally be obtained by challenges as well.
