The Cutlass is a rare sword that is dropped by Pirate enemies in a Pirate Invasion. The Cutlass deals very high damage (higher than Excalibur) and can be swung continuously at very high speed.
Its best Modifier is Legendary.
- The odds of getting at least one Cutlass over the course of a Pirate Invasion are about 60%.
- Since this Weapon is quite strong and available very early in Hardmode, Melee Characters are recommended to get it as soon as possible.
- This can be considered a Hardmode equivalent of the Muramasa - it automatically swings, has a very fast attack speed, and relatively low knockback.
- When talking to an NPC, you can only swing your Cutlass once per click, meaning you cannot swing it continuously.
The white pixels that are supposed to be shading on the Cutlass appear to be transparent instead. This is most likely an accident.
