While the best pickaxes in Fortnite: Battle Royale don't serve as the greatest weapons, they're certainly a necessity in the game. Primarily used for mining resources and hacking down structures, possibly those of opponents, there's a broad range of pickaxe skins to choose from. Whether you earn them in the Battle Pass or buy them with V-bucks, your pickaxe can go a long way. Not only that, but much like other items, like the best outfit skins, they can make you look much cooler—and tougher. 

As mentioned, there is quite the array of pickaxe skins available in the Cash Shop (or Season Shop). As with any items, you have the choice of rare pickaxes, epic pickaxes, as well as holiday options. While they all range in cost, one isn't necessarily going to be better than the other, outside of aesthetics of course. So, whether it's the legendary pickaxes you like, or the common ones, it's really up to you and how you want to look. 

Considering this, you can help decide which pickaxes are the best in Fortnite, from the most intimidating to the coolest and most badass. Check out the complete list below and vote for your favorites.
