Fortnite v14.50: OG Throwback Pickaxe Returns! - Unlock it for FREE!

It might not be the most adventurous pickaxe Fortnite has ever released, but it has some sentiment behind it!

The original pickaxe is heading back to Fortnite, and you can unlock it for free for a limited time!

A Throwback to the Good Old Days

The OG pickaxe epitomises everything Fortnite was about back in the day.

A simple wooden handle with a metal axe, the pickaxe did the job in what was a much simpler world back in Season 1.

WOODLAND! You certainly needed your axe with all those trees!

Up until now, only those who played in the first season of the Battle Royale title were able to don the infamous axe, but that is set to change.

How to Unlock

As Fortnite prepares to enter the Next Gen era, you can make sure you stay humble and stick to your roots by going out and picking up the OG axe!

Epic Games have announced that the pickaxe will be FREE to download in the in-game store and the PlayStation store, beginning on November 4.
