Starting with Season 10 update 10.20, players in Fortnite Battle Royale will be able to have access to pickaxe cosmetics from Save the World and vice-versa.
The beginning of Season 10 has arguably been the most controversial time Fortnite has ever seen.
Much of the criticism has focused on the implementation of the BRUTE mechs, but they have finally seen a nerf with an August 22 patch that buffed its health but nerfed just about everything else about them.
Building upon that, in patch 10.20, the next major update coming to Fortnite, a huge cosmetic change is coming that will benefit both Battle Royale and Save the World players.
This cosmetic update will allow your Save the World pickaxes to become available in Battle Royale, but it also allows for all your BR skins to come to StW. All you’ll have to do is download the update and you’re good to go.
“We’re happy to announce that Pickaxes are coming to the Locker in Save the World with the v10.20 update,” wrote Epic Games in a blog post. “Pickaxe selection will be added to the Locker tab, giving you the ability to customize your harvesting tool with any Pickaxe in your collection, from both Save the World and Battle Royale.”
This will be good news to anyone who plays both, but it won’t really matter much to BR players who don’t partake in Save the World.
There are several StW exclusive pickaxes right now so those will be nice to have in Battle Royale. Of course, the biggest news is those Save the World players will get access to all of the other pickaxes they might own in BR since there are so many available.
Epic Games haven’t given a set release time for 10.20, but we should be able to look forward to it sometime before the end of August.
