- Iron Pickaxe (Everything but Bedrock, and Obsidian)
- Gold Pickaxe (Only Stone level items)
- Diamond Pickaxe (Everything but Bedrock)
- Only a diamond pickaxe can mine obsidian.
- Prior to 0.6.1, if a pickaxe is used on Bedrock, it would break within 20 minutes, due to bedrock being unbreakable.
- Wooden or Stone Pickaxes are useful if you are going on a non-mining adventure as they can clear Stone in case of emergency.
- Golden pickaxes are the fastest when mining Stone-related and Sandstone-related items, but have only 33 uses, making it the weakest Pickaxe.
- If you mine an item with the wrong pick, it will merely destroy it.
