Steel Pickaxes do not gather Brimstone

Game mode: [Online]
Problem: [Bug]
Region: [USA]

Like the title says:
Steel Pickaxes do not gather Brimstone, at least not any in the “Executioners Entrance”

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Make Pickaxe
  2. Go to Executioners Entrance
  3. Mine Brimstone
  4. Get annoyed that you made a trip for nothing.

I do not know if this is a bug or by design. I hope it is a bug. I moved to using a hardened steel pick to gather brimstone.

This has happened to me and at least 2 others i know of since I got the game the day after release. I believe it’s a bug and have also reported it

Been like this forever… Doubt there will ever be a fix.


Yeah I had that issue as well I had to use iron pick to get brimstone anything higher wouldn’t work

I know for a fact that the steel pick and hardened steel pick do harvest brimstone. The only tool with pick in the name that is not working is the PICKAXE.

I have seen this as well. You must use a pick fro Brimstone. But I also found you can use a pickaxe on goop vs just using your hand to collect it. Where as the scythe or pick do not work on goop.
