This Black Friday, players of the battle royale title can pick up a free pickaxe called the Duelist's Grace. This article will show gamers how they can do that.

There are two ways to get the pickaxe, either through the item Shop or via the Epic Games Store. Here's are the steps to follow:

  1. Load up your computer.
  2. Open up the Epic Games Store.
  3. Search for the pickaxe.
  4. Claim your prize.

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Load up your computer.
  2. Open Fortnite on the device.
  3. Log in to the game with the appropriate account.
  4. Head to the Item Shop tab.
  5. Scroll through the page until you find the pickaxe.
  6. Claim it for free in the shop.
  7. Visit your locker to use the new item.

These steps are only applicable to computer users, though. This is because, unfortunately, the pickaxe will not be available on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, or PlayStation devices. Additionally, if you miss out on getting the item on Black Friday, it is possible that the harvesting tool will reappear in the Item Shop at a later date. But then you won't get to obtain it free of cost.

Please keep in mind that this is a leaked cosmetic. Leakers discovered it and its role in the game files. This means that there's no guarantee that the item will present itself on the Epic Games Store or in-game shop. However, there's a good chance it will.

What might Epic Games do on Black Friday 2022

Epic Games' biggest title is free-to-play, which means the developer gets nothing from players downloading the game and has to make money in other ways. It has largely done this through in-game cosmetics and other offerings.


Epic owns quite a lot of games, and its store facilitates access to even more. As a result, it is very likely that some of those titles will go on sale. The Fortnite developer does this practically every single year and has given no indication that it's planning to stop now. Epic Games has not, however, released any information on what the sales will entail this time.

That said, Rocket League, Among Us, Assassin's Creed, and many other games available on the Epic Games Store will likely be available at a discounted price.

Moreover, Fortnite players might see some discounts in the title. This could involve slashed prices on V-Bucks or discounts on in-game cosmetics. However, this is less probable and might not happen at all. So gamers should set their expectations accordingly.
