The list of exclusive cosmetics in Fortnite has grown by one with a recent announcement from Nvidia. The technology company announced that they’re teaming up with Epic Games to deliver an exclusive Dish-Stroyer pickaxe in Fortnite.
The Dish-Stroyer is only available to players who use Nvidia’s GeForce Now service. GeForce Now is a free or paid service that allows players to stream games from their computer, phone, or certain TVs. What’s great about GeForce Now is that players don’t even need a medium or high-end rig to run games, as the service uses Nvidia’s own servers to stream the games, so players can experience games at a higher quality than their rig could usually handle.
In order to earn the Dish-Stroyer pickaxe in Fortnite, players need to simply stream a game of Fortnite on GeForce Now between July 21, and Aug. 4 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The process of streaming games on GeForce Now isn’t too difficult but we’ve laid out the steps to do so below.
Earning the Dish-Stroyer pickaxe in Fortnite
First and foremost, you need to see if you have a compatible device with GeForce Now. You can see the list of compatible devices on a Nvidia blog post. If you do qualify, then head to the GeForce Now website and sign into your Nvidia account if you already have one. If you don’t, simply make an account. Then, you can choose which plan you want to access (if you’re not already a member). The free plan will be easiest for most players if they’re just looking to earn the Dish-Stroyer pickaxe.
Once a plan has been selected, you’ll see the full library of games available on GeForce Now. Search for Fortnite and then select it. Sign in to your Epic Games account and then hop into a match of Fortnite. That’s all that is required to earn the Dish-Stroyer pickaxe. If you manage to accomplish those tasks, the pickaxe should appear in your Fortnite locker by Aug. 11.
