The Adamantium Claws pickaxe is one of the latest cosmetic items in Fortnite Battle Royale. The item is inspired by Wolverine, a popular Marvel character who has appeared twice in the video game.
The cosmetic item has not yet been released to the Item Shop, leaving players confused on how to obtain it. It’s important to note that the Adamantium Claws pickaxe is not an Item Shop cosmetic, so players cannot purchase it for V-Bucks.
In this article we will explain how to get the new pickaxe. Unlike many other Marvel items, the cosmetic item can be used by Loopers with any aspect of the game, making it incredibly popular and valuable.
The Adamantium Claws pickaxe can be obtained from the Fortnite x Marvel comic
The Adamantium Claws pickaxe has been released with the Fortnite x Marvel: War Zero comic books. More specifically, players who purchase the third issue will receive the cosmetic item as a reward.
The third issue was released on Wednesday, August 17. It is not currently available for digital purchase, as stated on Marvel’s website. If you purchase a digital variant, you will not receive the cosmetic item, so be careful.
Also, you can order the complete set of comics out of Amazon.
Epic Games has clarified that the Adamantium Claws pickaxe will be available for purchase in the Item Shop at a later date. However, the video game developer has not revealed the exact release date of the cosmetic item.
It’s important not to confuse the new cosmetic item with the Adamantium Claws pickaxe released with the Chapter 2 Season 4 Battle Pass. Although these two cosmetic items have the same name, they work differently.
The pickaxe that was released with the Battle Pass was a reward from the Wolverine challenges and can only be used with that skin. It is activated using Wolverine’s built-in emote and replaces any other pickaxes a player is wearing.
However, the variant that comes with the comic can be worn with any outfit in the game. Considering that most of Marvel’s cosmetic items are restricted, this is excellent news.
Fortnite x Marvel: War Zero comic troubles and rewards
The Adamantium Claws pickaxe is the third bounty released with Fortnite x Marvel: War Zero comic books. The first reward was the popular Spider-Man Zero outfit, while players received an Iron Man-themed wrap for the second issue.
The fourth issue of the comics comes out on August 31, just one day after the v21.50 update. The fifth and final issue will be released on September 28, less than two weeks after the start of Chapter 3 Season 4.
Considering that these issues reveal a lot of interesting parts of the story, the fourth will most likely introduce players next season. On the contrary, the ending could reveal some of the biggest secrets and mysteries.
Players who redeem all five exclusive cosmetic items from Fortnite x Marvel: War Zero comics will be given an additional outfit in-game. However, this outfit has not been revealed yet.
