3. Leviathan Axe

You need to have this pickaxe if you like vikings.

This axe reminds me of Vikings with a touch of coldness to it. It has a very unique cool design which is why it's listed as 3rd in this list. It is also a reactive pickaxe which means it changes depending on what you do in the game, for example opening chests, eliminating players, etc.

This cool Viking design paired up with its reactive nature makes the axe one of a kind and a must-have.

  • Reactive.
  • Cool design

2. Reaper

Be the grim reaper and harvest your enemies with this pickaxe.

One of the oldest pickaxes in the game that the OG’s saw back in the day. If you had this back in the day, the whole lobby feared you and you were the biggest sweat in town. Even now when the enemies see this pickaxe, they get intimidated and tend to avoid you throughout the game. That’s the effect of this pickaxe alone.

It has a beautiful design and it's good to tell the enemies that you’re the grim reaper and have come to sweep their souls away.

What makes Reaper great:

  • OG pickaxe
  • Very popular in pro and casual fanbase of Fortnite.
  • Unique and once a type design.
