|“||A sharp metal pick for harvesting metal from mountain rocks, flint from rocks, and meat from bodies.||”|
— In-game Description
The Metal Pick is much more durable than the Stone Pick. It is under debate whether it mines material faster than the stone version. Players with high melee damage are reporting faster mining with stone tools as the metal ones destroy the resource node faster lowering the resource yield per rock.
The Metal Pick will obtain Metal from metal rocks as well as having a chance to get metal from normal rocks. Metal rocks either have yellow veins through them or are a shiny black color. The black rocks also contain Obsidian. The white crystals contain Crystal.
Rarely, a Metal Pick can drop as loot from a large dinosaur such as a T-Rex. Be sure to check the inventory of dead dinosaurs before harvesting them, as harvesting will cause the inventory to be lost.
