The Molten Pickaxe is the sixth and highest-tier of Pickaxe pre-hardmode, and has the convenient side benefit of emitting light, making it potentially useful even after obtaining a Drill. Like all pickaxes, it is used to mine a majority of blocks and ores. A Molten Pickaxe can destroy most blocks in one hit. If used as a weapon, it has a 10% chance of setting enemies on fire for a few seconds.
| One hit needed
@ 2.3 blocks per second

@ 1.2 blocks per second
- The Molten Pickaxe is actually slower than the Nightmare Pickaxe at mining the weakest block types: Ash, Clay, Dirt, Mud, and Sand. It is still faster at mining all other block types. Therefore, it is advisable to keep both Pickaxes around so they can be swapped as needed.
- The Molten Pickaxe is the only Pickaxe that can mine Cobalt Ore.
- 1.0.6: Can now inflict the On Fire! debuff.
