History
Introduced Patch 1.6
Last Adjustment Patch 6.30

Harvesting Tool (or Pickaxe) is a Melee Weapon available in Battle Royale. It is available in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Icon Series, Marvel Series, DC Series, Slurp Series, Shadow Series, Dark Series, Lava Series, Frozen Series, Star Wars Series and Gaming Legends Series rarities (depending on your harvesting tool selection). It does not drop from anything and is automatically obtained at the very beginning of every match of Battle Royale. They are one of the few weapons that can obtain resources from structures and tiles.

There are two variants of Pickaxes: Normal Pickaxes and Dual-Wielded Pickaxes.

There are no Mythic Pickaxes in Battle Royale.

Pickaxes deal 50 damage to player-built structures and 50 to normal structures. Once the pickaxes hits a structure, there is a blue circle that shows the weak spot to destroy that structure twice as fast. You also get more resources that way.

In Patch 6.30, the Pickaxe's damage was increased from 10 to 20.
