The IceCube Neutrino Observatory located at the geographic South Pole was designed to study and discover high energy neutrinos coming from both galactic and extragalactic astrophysical sources. Track-like events induced by charged-current muon-neutrino interactions close to the IceCube detector give an angular resolution better than 1° above TeV energies. We present here the results of searches for pointlike astrophysical neutrino sources on the full sky using 6 years of detector livetime, of which three years use the complete IceCube detector. Within 2000 days of detector livetime, IceCube is sensitive to a steady flux substantially below $E^2\,\partial\phi\,/\,\partial E=10^{-12}\mathrm{TeV\,cm^{-2}\,s^{-1}}$ in the northern hemisphere for neutrino energies above 10~TeV.
