Fortnite Crescent Shroom Pickaxe: When Can You Get The Pickaxe?
The new Madcap pickaxe serves as an apology from Epic Games for the shaky servers during Winterfest, and as such, they're giving it away for free - but only for a limited time. You can bag the pickaxe starting on January 7, and it'll be available to be claimed until the 10th - so you'll only have the weekend to grab it. You're going to want to be quick.
The only real caveat for claiming the pickaxe is that you'll have to have logged in during Fortnite Winterfest 2021 - so if you've had something of a Fortnite hiatus and are looking to simply bag the pickaxe after not having played in some time, you're unfortunately out of luck.
Fortnite Crescent Shroom Pickaxe: How To Get The Pickaxe
We simply won't know how you can claim the pickaxe until it appears in the game itself, but we've got a couple of ideas of how it will arrive with players who are eligible to claim it. The first option is that it will simply appear in players' item collections - it's probably the easiest way for Epic Games to do it, and would be convenient for players.
The second and most likely method of delivery is for the pickaxe to appear in the item shop much like the free loading screens that appeared near the end of the last season. All you'll have to do is find it in the store and claim it, and it'll be all yours.
That's all we know about the new pickaxe - jump into the game from the 7th and see if you can bag it!
