Fortnite pickaxes: All cosmetics not working
While Epic Games didn't go into detail about what issue has led them to disable certain pickaxe cosmetics in the Fortnite Competitive playlist, the developer did note they would let fans know as soon as these cosmetics return.
If you've equipped one of the pickaxes and jump into a Competitive playlist, you will instead see the default pickaxe equipped.

At the time of writing, Epic Games has not revealed when these pickaxes will start showing up in Competitive Fortnite again. However, it is close to the top of the Battle Royale issues list via the official Fortnite Trello board.
We expect the developer to fix this issue soon. With that being said, Fortnite v16.50 was the last scheduled update for the game. However, Epic Games might release a hotfix to squash the pickaxes issue. We will let you know once we have more information on the topic.
