The Salvaged Icepick is a melee weapon/tool in Experimental Rust. It is the best tool for gathering stone and ores, combining the Stone Pick Axe's mining speed with the Pick Axe's efficiency, and has more range than that of the Hatchet. It is very expensive to craft however. The Salvaged Icepick has a slow swing speed, about that of the Rock, but makes up for that by mining more minerals with each strike. It gathers very slightly less minerals from each Node than the Pick Axe (about 30% more than the Stone Pick Axe), but completes the job even faster than the Stone Pick Axe (14 seconds to Stone Pick Axe's 22.67 seconds, to Pick Axe's 27.4 seconds). This gives it a 2.1 times greater yield over time than the Stone Pick Axe, not including the amount of time running between nodes.
The Salvaged Icepick is the more expensive, high-end option for stone-gathering. The durability was increased with the Component system update, making it the number one stone/ore gathering tool.
