The summer legends pack for Fortnite is now available and with it comes a no-shame shirtless banana. However, away from the summer legends pack and its topless banana and cute girls, Epic Games have also announced a collaboration with Marvel’s Avengers. Here you’ll discover how to get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe in Fortnite so you can become a raging monster in-game while hopefully acting like a civil and groomed genius outside of it.
Marvel’s Avengers comes out in September and Square Enix have been hosting a bunch of War Table showcases to hype up its arrival. These War Table demonstrations have shown off the game’s extensive customisation and what fans can expect from the gameplay and story, and – aside from the uncanny valley appearances – everything looks great.
You’ll be able to try out the game before its release via multiple betas, and it’s these short demos that will allow you get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe in Fortnite.
How to get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe in Fortnite
You must follow the below steps to get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe and Hulkbuster Style in Fortnite:
- Make sure your accounts are all linked
- Play the Marvel’s Avengers beta on either PS4 or Xbox One
- Complete the three HARM challenges
And that’s how you get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe in Fortnite along with the Hulkbuster Style.
In order to ensure all your necessary accounts are linked, you must link either your PSN or Xbox profile to your Epic account.
Provided you’ve done that, you then need to visit Square Enix’s Membership website and link your Epic Games account.
When is the Marvel’s Avengers beta?
You can find the dates below for the Marvel’s Avengers beta to get the Hulk Pickaxe in Fortnite:
- August 7th-9th: PlayStation 4 Pre-Order Beta
- August 14th-16th: PlayStation 4 Open Beta
- August 14th-16th: Xbox One Pre-Order Beta
- August 21st-23rd: Open Beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
As you can see from the above list of dates, there are open betas for both consoles so you don’t need to pre-order to get the Hulk Pickaxe and to sample Marvel’s Avengers.
Will the Hulk Pickaxe join the Fortnite item shop?
Yes, the Hulk Pickaxe will eventually join the Fortnite item shop.
There’s no date for when the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe will join the Fortnite item shop, but it’ll probably happen after August.
Either way, if you don’t want to spend any cash, then your best way of getting it is by participating in one of the open betas.
Even if you have no interest in Marvel’s Avengers your sample will cost nothing and you may end up enjoying your time as Thor and co.
