The Crescent Shroom pickaxe is a cosmetic to match the upcoming Madcap skin and Epic is giving players the chance to claim it for free. Leaks have revealed that the Madcap skin will be added during Chapter 1 Season 3. HYPEX, another well-known leaker has suggested that we will be getting a Madcap bundle which will include the skin, a backbling, and the pickaxe.
