The Cutlass is a rare Hardmode sword that has a 0.5% (1 in 200) chance to be dropped by Pirate enemies in a Pirate Invasion. The Cutlass deals good damage and can be swung continuously at very high speed.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The odds of getting at least one Cutlass over the course of a Pirate Invasion are about 45%.
  • This can be considered a Hardmode equivalent of the Muramasa - it automatically swings, has a very fast attack speed, and has relatively low knockback.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Since this weapon is quite strong and available very early in Hardmode, melee characters may have an easier time dealing with Hardmode if they acquire this weapon early.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its appearance is closer to that of a scimitar than a cutlass.
  • It has a dark outline and transparent pixels in its blade, so against dark backgrounds it looks deformed.
  • When talking to an NPC, you can only swing your Cutlass once per click, meaning you cannot swing it continuously.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Damage and usage speed slightly decreased.
  • 1.2: Introduced.
