Epic Games has always made it a point to usher in members from other pop-culture fandoms into the Fortnite bandwagon. It is one of the many reasons why one of the oldest games of the Battle Royale genre is still one of the most iconic ones.
This is no small feat, given that a title like Call of Duty Warzone is still in its prime. Epic Games increases its fandom by including iconic elements from pop-culture and amalgamating them into Fortnite through collaborations.
We saw the previous Marvel-themed season, and the season that followed did not disappoint fans either. We saw the addition of the Mandalorian item set, NPCs, and other exciting content into the game. With the addition of The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, fans wanted even more from these two beloved characters.
Most of the cosmetic items related to The Mandalorian are already available on the Fortnite item shop, except for one item, that being the Mandalorian Pickaxe. Now, this item is already present in the game files, and will soon be available in the game.
The Fortnite community is eagerly waiting for the Mandalorian pickaxe
First of all, the Mandalorian Pickaxe does not look like a pickaxe at all. It is actually the Ambian Sniper Rifle, the mythic weapon that you get after defeating the character, which functions as a pickaxe. Now, mind you, if you try pickaxing something using the actual Ambian Sniper Rifle, it kind of makes you jump towards the target but nothing more.
Now, about the designated pickaxe, it will most probably be available as a reward for an upcoming live event. With Zero Point becoming unstable every day, we are almost certain of an impending major in-game event. In all possibilities, this will be the event that rewards you with this pickaxe. Another possibility might be that this will be available as a reward for a Beskar quest as well.
Whatever may be the case, it is only a matter of time before this item hits the game. With the new update dropping tonight, we have our fingers crossed!
