There is a chance of finding a jackhammer from toolboxes or supply drops.
It is the soft-side raiding tool of choice for those wishing to eco-raid their neighbor.
You can take several steps to improve your ore-gathering gameplay when farming. Combine your jackhammering with drinking an ore-gathering tea. Doing this just once with a Pure Ore Tea will significantly increase the speed at which you can fill your furnaces.
