Fortnite’s Drift and his harvesting tool, the Rift Edge, are currently available as earnable cosmetics.

Drift is one of the most iconic characters of the Fortnite franchise. His trademark kitsune mask and long coat are instantly recognizable to most veteran players of Epic Games’ flagship battle royale. Unsurprisingly, thanks to his popularity, Drift has a full series of cosmetics for fans to obtain for each part of their gameplay. One of these is the Rift Edge—his harvesting tool.

The Rift Edge is an epic skin available for the player’s harvesting tool. It comes with the Drift bundle, however, it isn’t obtainable via the Item Shop. Unlike other cosmetic bundles, players will need to complete challenges in order to get the skin.

Originally, introduced with Chapter 1, Season 5 in August 2018, players had the opportunity to claim the pickaxe by earning 100,000 experience points through that season’s battle pass. It has yet to rotate back into the game—whether through the Item Shop or otherwise.

The game describes it as “Piercing through the dimensional plane.” Indeed, its appearance backs this up. Bathed in Drift’s trademark pink, the blade of the tool is hooked and glows with what we can assume to be interdimensional energy. It’s fashioned to the similarly pink metal handle with facets of silver and brass. The tool also features a matching brass chain at its end. Overall, it gives the illusion that perhaps someone found an artifact with the power to jump dimensions and fashioned it to the handle of a regular harvesting tool.
