It’s always great to see new features in the Fortnite item shop, and it’s an especially good time to be a Marvel fan in the game too. We have seen the likes of Deadpool, Aquaman, and Wolverine added in the recent weeks and months, and now it’s time for a crushing addition in the form of the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe. It’s not just new Fortnite weapons causing all the excitement after all, especially when a pickaxe tool as cool as this comes around.
How do you unlock Hulk Smashers?
There is a rather unique way of unlocking this Fortnite item. You need to have been a part of the Marvel’s Avengers beta on PS4 and Xbox One and compete in the HARM challenges. By completing three of these Fortnite challenges, players would be able to smash through the Fortnite map Hulk style.
If you managed to participate in the beta, by downloading the relevant client, you would then need to play through the story until the Snowy Tundra mission was finished. It takes a couple of hours to get to this point, which would then unlock the HARM room. Once inside the room at the bottom of the hangar, there will be a tutorial to finish. After that, you can then go to the war table and click on the Helicarrier to get into a Harm Challenge. Play through the Fortnite challenges until you’ve reached the end of the third and final task to get the Hulk Smashers pickaxe in Fortnite.
Do I need to link my Fortnite accounts?
This is a key factor in receiving the coveted pickaxe. In order to receive it, you need to make sure that you link your console, along with both your Epic Games and Square Enix account, all together for it to work. You would first need to have linked your console to Epic Games, then link your Epic Fortnite account to your Square Enix account. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to tear up the map.
Now you know how to get your hands on the Hulk Smashers, you can once again get a bit of an authentic Marvel to feel within Fortnite. It’s certainly exciting to see how many Fortnite cosmetics we have seen in the Fortnite item shop when it comes to comic book adaptations. All we can wish for is that this run of Marvel crossovers amongst others continues on. What Epic Games has in store for us next remains to be seen, but we are hoping to see more of this kind of additional content. So, if you haven’t done so already, be sure to go and check out Marvel’s Avengers too, and you might be able to obtain a neat new Fortnite item or two.
