Pickaxes

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
For other items which have pickaxe power, see Drills.

Pickaxes are tools used to remove blocks and mine ores. As of Update 1.2 they can remove placed Wood blocks, as well as furniture. However, they cannot remove walls. They can also be used as weapons. Some of the Hardmode-tier pickaxes have slower drill counterparts.

The Mining speed is different to the speed statistics in the table below.

New players spawn with a Copper Pickaxe.

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