If you own a PS4 or Xbox One, here’s how to earn the new Hulk Smashers Pickaxe and bonus Hulkbuster style on Fortnite.
Fortnite have released loads of awesome harvesting tools over the years, but for Marvel fans, this new Superhero inspired gear may take the top spot. To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Marvel’s Avengers videogame, Epic have created the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe.
The Hulk Smashers Pickaxe will let players farms materials or take walls in style, with the famous green hands of the Hulk. The extra Hulkbuster style is based on Tony Stark’s forty-fourth Iron Man suit.
To unlock the pickaxe for free, you will need to play through the Marvel’s Avengers beta, more specifically, completing the three HARM Challenges. PlayStation players who pre-order the game can access the beta a few days early, but there will also be a free-to-play, open beta.
To ensure that you get your loot, you will have to properly link your console, Epic and Square Enix accounts. If you haven’t already, you can link your PlayStation or Xbox account to your Epic Games account here. Then head over to https://membership.square-enix.com/campaigns/Epic to pair up your Epic Games account with Square Enix.
Check out the full Marvel’s Avengers Beta schedule below:
August 7-9: PlayStation 4 Pre-Order Beta
(Marvel Avengers PlayStation 4 pre-order players only)
August 14-16: PlayStation 4 Open Beta
August 14-16: Xbox One Pre-Order Beta
(Marvel Avengers Xbox One pre-order players only)
August 21-23: Open Beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
If you don’t have time to play the beta, or don’t own a PS4 or Xbox, you will get the chance to purchase the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe from the Item Shop at a later date. Potentially this means we may see another Marvel themed Fortnite crossover event, perhaps with even more cosmetics or even an LTM.
