Pickaxes

From Terraria Wiki
(Redirected from Pickaxe)
Jump to: navigation, search
For other items which have pickaxe power, see Drills.

Pickaxes are tools used to remove blocks and mine ores. They can remove placed Wood blocks, as well as placed furniture. However, they cannot remove background walls (this requires a hammer instead). They also double as basic melee weapons. Some of the Hardmode-tier pickaxes have drill counterparts.

New players spawn with a Copper Pickaxe.

Pickaxes can use modifiers that increase speed, like Quick and Light. Accessories with the Violent modifier will not increase mining speed, as only the modifier on the pickaxe itself will.
