The FNCS Axe of Champions is without a doubt the rarest pickaxe in Fortnite Battle Royale history. To obtain the FNCS Axe of Champions, players must win the FNCS Championship. Additionally, when a new team wins the FNCS Championship, the previous winners lose their pickaxe.
Since this pickaxe gets rotated through FNCS Champions, only 21 players can have it in their locker at a time. Three players from the seven Epic Games competition regions. If you see someone coming at you with the FNCS Axe of Champions now you’ll know they are a top tier player in Fortnite Battle Royale.
AC/DC is an Epic rarity pickaxe added to Fortnite Battle Royale in Fortnite Season 2. Despite the name, the AC/DC pickaxe has nothing to do with the band AC/DC. The AC/DC pickaxe is a voltage themed pickaxe in Fortnite.
Players needed to reach Tier 63 of the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass. AC/DC being from an OG Fortnite Season Battle Pass, and requiring a high tier to unlock, pair to make AC/DC among the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Permafrost was a free pickaxe released in Fortnite Season 5. I know what you’re thinking; how is a free pickaxe the rarest pickaxe in Fortnite. The Permafrost pickaxe required players to earn 250,000 XP in Fortnite Season 5 to unlock.
Such a high bar to unlock Permafrost, and Permafrost being released in an older Fortnite Season, combine to make Permafrost among the rarest pickaxes in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Armature was released in Fortnite Season 7 along with the Tech Ops and Hypernove Fortnite skins. Fortnite players didn’t take fondly to the Armature pickaxe at first. The lack of appreciation led Epic Games to withdraw Armature from the Fortnite Item Shop.
