The Duelist's Grace pickaxe is another free cosmetic item in Fortnite. The item was added to the game data with the v22.40 update, and it can be obtained from the Item Shop.
Unfortunately, Epic Games has made this item exclusive to PC players. The Duelist's Grace pickaxe is available to Epic Games Store users. Since the store is only available on PC, console players will have to find a different way to obtain it.
This article will explain everything you need to know about the free Fortnite pickaxe and how to get it. The conclusion dives into a trick to potentially get the cosmetic item on a console or mobile.
The Duelist's Grace pickaxe looks fantastic and is free
The free Fortnite pickaxe has come out as part of the Black Friday promotion. It is available in the game for a limited time, from Tuesday, November 22, until November 29. The item's in-game description reads:
"Forged by a legendary swordsman, this elegand rapier is eternally sharp. Equip the Duelist's Grace to strike fast, aim true, and stay in the fight."
To obtain the free Fortnite cosmetic item, you need to launch the game through the Epic Games Launcher. Once in the game, open the Item Shop and press the "Purchase" button.
By interacting with the button, the pickaxe will be added to your locker and you will be able to use it. However, make sure to obtain the item before the promotion ends.
Epic Games hasn't revealed anything regarding the potential return of the pickaxe. While there is a chance that it will come out to the Item Shop at some point as a paid item, the development team may never bring it back.
As you can see in the screenshots above, the item is completely free. The payment method linked to your Epic Games account will not be charged.
How to get Duelist's Grace pickaxe on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, and mobile
The new Fortnite cosmetic item cannot be obtained on gaming consoles and mobile phones. However, there is an easy trick you can use to get it on your PlayStation, Xbox, or any other account.
You simply need to gain access to a PC or have your friend log in with their account. Your friend will then head over to the Item Shop to obtain the Duelist's Grace pickaxe for you.
In the past, some Epic Games Store exclusives were obtainable by launching Nvidia's GeForce Now app. The cloud gaming service is free and you can try to obtain a new item with it.
Remember that you will have to link your console or mobile phone account to an Epic Games account for this trick to work. You can do this by logging in to Epic's official website with your account and opening the account settings. If you're unsure how to do this, please watch the video above.
