The Fortnite emote pickaxe cancel has been deemed as something that players can be banned for by Epic Games as the company sees it as an exploit that is not approved.


Lynx shared in a discord server that while the exploit is a problem on Epic Games' end it is not something that a player can do repeatedly on accident. 

The exploit allows players to gather materials faster by being able to swing the pickaxe faster. If players swing the pickaxe, then cancel it within emote, then cancel the emote with another pickaxe swing, it will get the player a double swing that can be used every two other swings.

Epic Games has new content in the works for Fortnite, with the new Playground Limited Time Mode coming to the game soon.
