Dark Shard


Splintered from geometric perfection.


Can be bought from Cash Shop with 1,200 V-Bucks.

The Dark Shard is among the epic harvesting tool skins for the Battle Royale version of the game called Fortnite. The Dark Shard has a glowing feature that makes it special from most harvesting tool skins. However, this pickaxe skin does not affect the efficiency or speed of gathering resources or produces luminance.


The Dark Shard features a sharp black shard of rock placed on top of a wicked-looking steel rod. The rock shard on top of the rod can also glow purple and emit green spectral flames, making this skin special as compared to most harvesting tool skins. Although the rock shard can glow, it does not emit light and does not have any other function. The shard on the pickaxe glows and transforms after killing a certain number of players in a single game.
