Description[edit | edit source]
A Steel 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 fairly easy to craft, but with the recipe requiring Forged Steel it is reasonably expensive on resources and requires you have a Forge.
The quality and durability of the Steel Pickaxe entirely depends upon a survivors Tool Smithing (Skill), which is required to be able to craft the item.
Despite the Steel Pickaxe being slower to swing than a standard Iron Pickaxe, it does far more block damage than the former, being most effective at harvesting stone & ores.
As a weapon it is a bit slow, but still potent enough to deal with minor threats and requires no ammunition.
Uses[edit | edit source]
As a Tool[edit | edit source]
When used as a tool a Steel 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 Steel Pickaxe is capable of destroying blocks up to four blocks away.
