Looking for answers on how to get the Photonic Striker Pickaxe in Fortnite? This brand-new Harvesting Tool is one of the few Legendary Pickaxes in Fortnite. The Photonic Striker Pickaxe is extremely customisable — plus it's progressive — meaning you'll unlock new Styles as you work through the prerequisites. So, if this one-of-a-kind Harvesting Tool entices you, read on to find out how to get the Photonic Striker Pickaxe in Fortnite.

How To Get The Photonic Striker Pickaxe In Fortnite

The Photonic Striker Pickaxe is 2022's version of the Fortnite Crew Legacy Set that was released in 2021. When you first subscribe to Fortnite Crew, not only will you unlock the standard benefits, such as the monthly Crew Pack, but you'll also get the Photonic Striker Harvesting Tool. 

However, like the cosmetics in the Fortnite Crew Legacy Set, the Photonic Striker is progressive. To unlock all of its Styles and colour variations, you'll need to keep up a Fortnite Crew membership for an extended period of time. Every month you stay an active subscriber, you'll unlock a new Stage of the Fortnite Photonic Striker Pickaxe.

The Laser Red, Radiant Blue, and Magnetic Green colour options offer a new level of customisation when it comes to the Photonic Striker Pickaxe. You can mix and match these colours with any of the Fortnite Photonic Striker Pickaxe Styles.

To unlock the Laser Red, Radiant Blue, and Magnetic Green colours for the Photonic Striker Harvesting Tool, you must subscribe to Fortnite Crew and maintain your subscription for five additional months.

How Much Does Unlocking The Fortnite Photonic Striker Pickaxe Cost?

When it's all said and done, it will take six months of active Fortnite Crew membership to unlock the Photonic Striker Pickaxe and all its Styles and colours. Considering a Fortnite Crew subscription costs £9.99 per month, fully evolving the Photonic Striker Harvesting Tool requires a significant financial investment. But on the bright side, the cost of entry will likely lead to the Photonic Striker Pickaxe becoming one of the rarest cosmetics in all of Fortnite

In the end, if you're a fan of Fortnite Crew anyway, the Photonic Striker Pickaxe is just an extra incentive to maintain your subscription and flex your status as a long-term member of the program.
