Epic Games has always made it a point to lead members of other pop culture fandoms to the Fortnite bandwagon. It’s one of the many reasons why one of the oldest games in the battle royale genre is still one of the most iconic.
This is no mean feat, given the fact that a title like Call of Duty Warzone is still in the peaks. Epic Games is increasing its fandom by incorporating iconic pop culture elements and merging them through collaborations into Fortnite.
We saw a Marvel themed last season, and the season that followed didn’t disappoint the fans either. We saw the addition of the Mandalorian item set, NPCs and other exciting content to 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 in the Fortnite item store, except for one item which is the Mandalorian Pickaxe. This item is already present in the game files and will be available in-game soon.
The Fortnite community is eagerly awaiting the Mandalorian pickaxe
First of all, the Mandalorian Pickaxe doesn’t look like a pickaxe at all. It’s actually the Ambian Sniper Rifle, the mythical weapon you get after defeating the character that functions like a pickaxe. Mind you, if you try to pick something with the actual Ambian Sniper Rifle, it will make you jump to the target a bit, but nothing more.
Now, as for the designated pickaxe, it will most likely be available as a reward for an upcoming live event. With Zero Point becoming unstable every day, we are almost certain of an imminent major in-game event. In all cases, this will be the event that will reward you with this pickaxe. Alternatively, this will also be available as a reward for a Beskar quest.
Either way, it’s only a matter of time before this item comes into play. With the new update out tonight, we’ve got our fingers crossed!
