The Drax is an alternative to the Pickaxe Axe. Appearances and sounds aside, the two tools are functionally identical. However, unlike pickaxes, most drills cannot be reforged with size, speed, or knockback modifiers, making Demonic the best possible prefix. Drax is the one exception, as it can be reforged with knockback, allowing the Godly prefix. The Drax on console versions is called the hamdrax and it works as Hammer, Axe, and Drill.

Can mine any block except Lihzahrd Bricks.

[edit] Tips

  • Due to its rapid attack speed, high damage and knockback, it can serve as a melee weapon for low-end close-range targets.

[edit] Notes

  • The Drax does not have the most axe power in the game. With 110%, the Molten Hamaxe and The Axe both beat it with 150%, and 175% respectively. However, the Drax is faster than the Molten Hamaxe and, comparing unmodified tools, will break trees down faster.
  • The best Modifier for this tool is Godly.
  • In Console version, due to it still having hammer capabilities, it can be rather annoying to mine usin the Auto/Smart Cursor mode
Anomaly If you kill someone with the Drax it will say that the person was killed with a Hamdrax, which is the old name of the Drax.
Anomaly Mobile: In the mobile version, you can get the Hamdrax from a Present from the Christmas Update.
Anomaly Mobile: In the mobile version, it is possible to find the Hamdrax by going to the Underworld and opening a Shadow Chest.

[edit] Trivia

  • "Drax" is a portmanteau of words, drill and axe, because it can perform the actions of both.
  • This, prior to version 1.2, along with the Hallowed Repeater, was the only item forged from boss souls that is of red rarity, despite, arguably, that it used to be the most difficult craftable item to obtain in Terraria.
  • Getting this tool in the 1.1 version could have been considered a top accomplishment, as the player had to kill Skeletron Prime, The Twins and The Destroyer each at least once to obtain the once required souls.
  • The Drax is the only drill with knockback.
  • Prior to 1.2, this item was called the Hamdrax, but then its use as a hammer was removed, therefore the name was simply changed to Drax.
  • The original tooltip for the Drax was: “Not to be confused with a hamsaw.”
