Minecraft has 5 types of pickaxes. They are core part of the gameplay as the name says Minecraft so it’s all about mining resources. Pickaxes play an important role in mining.
Fortnite has pretty cool pickaxes as well but we dont really need a pickaxe to win the game.
Fortnite players have built some amazing bases. Many gamers live stream their gameplay and one can only imagine how impressive those structures are.
Comparably, Minecraft is still ahead in this race. People have made complete cities using simple building blocks!
Fortnite has been getting popularity day by day. It’s player base has reached 250 million with around 50 million active monthly players.
Minecraft still leads this by more than 91 million active monthly players now. It also holds the record of most sold game in the world.
