Here are the top 5 rarest pickaxes in Fortnite that players were able to purchase from the Item Shop using V-Bucks.
With the hundreds and thousands of cosmetic items Fortnite has produced, players are always looking for the rarest ones to equip. Wearing a rare skin or using a prized pickaxe gives players a status of superiority.
Some cosmetics, like the Renegade Raider skin, are the most sought after, but they likely won’t ever be available again. Others are rare simply because they haven’t been in the Item Shop in years.
This list will go over the Top 5 rarest pickaxes in Fortnite that players were able to purchase in the Item Shop. This excludes any Battle Pass or event-exclusive rewards.

The Empire Axe was introduced in Chapter 1 Season 3. And it made frequent appearances in the Item Shop after its release. However, the last time it was for sale was on February 28th, 2019- 1,089 days ago.
4. Armature – 1,090 Days
Armature was released in Chapter 1 Season 7 and was only featured in the Item Shop once after its initial release. It was last seen on February 27th, 2019- 1,090 days ago.
3. Tooth Pick – 1,118 Days

2. Turbine – 1,167 Days

These dates are subject to change as Epic Games can choose to feature any of these pickaxes in the Item Shop. However, due to their lack of popularity, these might stay the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite for some time.
