A Marksman with the Pickaxe equipped.
The Pickaxe in an early version of Ace of Spades.

The Pickaxe is available to the Marksman, Engineer and Medic classes and is mainly used as a digging tool, although it can also be used as a melee weapon.

The pickaxe can damage blocks up to three blocks away, and damages one block per hit. On default settings, the pickaxe will remove map placed blocks in one hit and player placed blocks in two hits. Any blocks removed using the pickaxe are added to the player's block wallet.
