For the weapon type, see Spears.

The Spear is a weapon found in surface Chests. It deals 8 damage and has a listed speed of Slow.

The Spear has a slightly shorter range than the Phaseblade and acts like the Vilethorn where it is possible to do damage to the same monster more than once every attack. Due to its longer range and better knockback than other early weapons, such as the Wooden Sword, and its ability to hit enemies multiple times, it is highly recommended. In fact, while stationary, it can hit a Zombie twice, and while walking towards it, the Spear can hit it three times. This gives 10-15 damage per stab, compared to just 4 damage with a Wooden Sword. It can hold back multiple Eater of Souls, Little Eaters, or Big Eaters at once, and can be useful when travelling in The Corruption.
