Getting Crescent Shroom Pickaxe in Fortnite
According to Sportskeeda, the Crescent Shroom Pickaxe was released in the game. This harvesting tool is a compensatory gift which is rewarded to gamers for the December login issue. It will serve as the 15th gift that gamers were discussing for some time.
It is explained on that site that Epic has scheduled a Power Leveling Weekend from January 7 at 7 pm ET until January 10 at 7 am ET, giving gamers the chance to get some serious XP during the limited period. It seems that it was also done to give compensation for the inconvenience which is caused to players because of login issue several days ago.
So, how to get Crescent Shroom Pickaxe in Fortnite? It is explained on Sportskeeda that the game at first reported an unopened gift and it is natural for most players to think the upcoming reward will be available from the Cozy Lodge. However, it is revealed that players will not be able to claim the reward by opening any gift. Loopers who logged in during the WinterFest will get the reward automatically on their accounts.
The pickaxe will also be found in the Item Shop sometime in the future. However, the price is not revealed yet. If you miss the chance to get it for free, you are able to buy one when Epic adds it to the Item Shop next time.
For your information, the Fortnite WinterFest event started on December 16th, 2021 and it ends on January 6th, 2022. If you logged in while the WinterFest event is live in the game, you can get the Crescent Shroom Pickaxe for free.
You are able to check a tweet from Fortnite @FortniteGame on January 5th, 2022. On the tweet, it is written that Epic Games wants to say thanks to everyone’s patience during the December login issue and they kick off a Power Leveling Weekend from 1/7 at 7 pm to 1/10 at 7 am ET and give players who logged in during WinterFest the new Crescent Shroom Pickaxe before it arrives in the Shop later.
According to the Attack Of The Fanboy site, the Crescent Shroom Pickaxe is a matching cosmetic for the upcoming Madcap skin. Leaks have revealed that the Madcap skin will be available sometime during Chapter 3 Season 1. Fortnite leaker named ShiinaBR had made a tweet that Epic has updated the outfit to show the text ‘Introduced in Chapter 3, Season 1’ in the game. There is also HYPEX, who is another leaker, who has suggested that we will get a Madcap bundle and it will include the skin, a backbling and the pickaxe. Nevertheless, there is no exact release date for the skin until now.
