The Dragon Rune Lance pickaxe has been temporarily disabled because it was buggy and removed the sound of footsteps when carried by a player. In other words, you could sneak up behind players while carrying the pickaxe.

Good morning! Earlier today, Epic Games disabled the “Dragon Rune Spear” battle pass pickaxe due to a bug that would make your footsteps completely silent. pic.twitter.com/lDimgtEi33

If you had the audio display options enabled, any player running with the Dragon Rune Lance pickaxe would also not see his footsteps for you. In other words, the pickaxe is very buggy and gives players who wear and wield it an unfair advantage over players who don't.
The Dragon Rune Lance pickaxe is available as an unlock on page 3 of the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass.
When will Dragon Rune Lance pickaxe return?
As this appears to be a fairly minor issue with the pickaxe itself, it will likely return to the game lockers very soon. It may take Epic Games a while to get to the bottom of what is causing it.
Currently, Epic Games hasn't shared an exact timeline on when it will return, but hopefully players should see it return later this week.
