Some quickaxes at the bottom left

The process where a mother uses a stone pickaxe until it is almost going to break. Then the mother will leave this quickaxe for any rushers to use. This is practical for when the opposing team is very close to the mothers planet and giving the opposing team more equipment to break bridges and structures would be very unsafe.

The mother can also do quick swords but unless the sword is used to cut down leaves it is unlikely many stone swords will get close to breaking, comapred to how often stone picks will break when a team runs out of iron.
