A Pickaxe is a tool used to mine stone-type blocks and ores in Minecraft PS3 Edition. They are required to gather stone resources for crafting and building, as well as gathering mineral resources such as Iron Ore and Coal. Pickaxes can also be used to gather other blocks, but they aren't as effective. As with all types of tools, there are various types of Enchantments available for the pickaxe. Of all the tools, the pickaxe is the tool that deals the third highest amount of damage when compared to other tools of the same composition.
