Description[edit]

A Pickaxe is a Multi-purpose tool that can be found throughout the world in 7 Days to Die. It can be crafted using the correct items and is easy to craft, but with the recipe requiring Iron Ingots it is reasonably expensive on resources. Supply crates from air drops can sometimes contain a Pickaxe. Its Durability will last for 500 hits at which point it will be destroyed. However, before being destroyed it is possible to Repair it using Metal Strips. It cannot be dismantled, but it can be scrapped, melted in a Forge and burnt as a source of Combustible fuel. As a tool it is most effective when used on stone based items and boulders. As a weapon it is used at close range and does not require any Ammunition.

Uses[edit]

As a Tool[edit]

When used as a tool a Pickaxe is especially suited to mining, which in turn allows you to gather various minerals, metals and ores. It is also effective when used to destroy stone based blocks as it is the appropriate tool for stone based blocks. It is also the best tool for use on metal based blocks. A Pickaxe is capable of destroying blocks up to four blocks away.

As a Weapon[edit]

During combat a Pickaxe is a somewhat effective short range weapon and can kill an average Zombie with three direct hits to the head or 10 hits or more to the body. It is more effective against one or two Zombies and will not be very effective when dealing with a group of several Zombies at close quarters. It can be used quite effectively against single zombies when combined with the stealth of crouching to launch a sneak attack.

Crafting[edit]

Repair[edit]

The condition of a Pickaxe deteriorates with each use until eventually it will be destroyed, before this happens it can be repaired. This can be done using Metal Strips which will restore 10 Durability for each one used. The example shown below is merely to illustrate the items needed as currently they can be placed into the crafting grid in any position.

Scrapping[edit]

A Pickaxe can be scrapped by placing it into the centre of the crafting grid to craft. This will allow you to craft Scrap Iron.

Notes[edit]

  • The effectiveness of the picking depends on your stamina and condition of the weapon. The higher your stamina and condition of your Pickaxe, the faster you will pick.
