Epic reported disabling this particular pickaxe due to some slower swing bug, it turns out to be quite the opposite.
A few days ago, Epic announced that one of the pickaxes was excluded from Ranked mode. All because of a bug that meant that the first swipe of the collector was supposed to be slower than all the others in the game.
The problem is that the players tested it thoroughly. Ultimately, it looks like it’s not about lagging behind other pickaxes at all.
What was the real reason?
You can see from all comparisons that a pickaxe called Burner Bash provides an unfair advantage. By playing it, you can collect materials faster. It’s not something that greatly influences the gameplay, but it can definitely make a difference.
The first two strokes are faster than the other pickaxes. In some situations the servers don’t do the trick and eventually it’s a bit slower. Epic apparently did not want to worry the community, so full information on this pickaxe has not been provided.
Play it or not? At this point, SypherPK, but also other youtubers and streamers are convinced that this is the classic Pay2Win.
