As for today's new pickaxes, the shop has given fans the choice of the Pick Squeak and Renegade Roller for 1500 and 1200 V-Bucks respectively.

Those are the four headline items from the new shop refresh but there's plenty more on top of that from the pool of Daily Items.

This includes the Survival Specialist and Desperado skins, both costing 1200 V-Bucks.

There's also the Bottom Feeder pickaxe, costing 1500 V-Bucks and Mainframe glider for 500 V-Bucks.
