Pickaxes are tools that allow the player to obtain resources. Pickaxes are important and a priority for many players.Pickaxes are also able to destroy structures of any tier, however, they do this much, much slower than hammers. All pickaxes share size and speed, with damage, gather/hit, and sprites change as they are upgraded. Pickaxes are the most used tool in, acting as the primary means to obtain resources. While upgrading a pickaxe does not affect its speed or size, it does increase the amount harvested every hit. Some players prefer to upgrade the pickax before any other tool or weapon. In late game, some players prefer not to upgrade the diamond pickaxe to amethyst pickaxe because it can't gather any new resources.
