We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Cactus Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe that has the same power (35%) as the Copper and Tin Pickaxes, which is the lowest in the game, and shares the +1 range advantage over the Copper Pickaxe. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which can be mined with a Tungsten Pickaxe or better), and seems to have an almost identical mining time to that of its copper counterpart. This pickaxe differs from all other early-game pickaxes, though, as it is made entirely from Cactus, and is crafted at a Work Bench rather than an Anvil, meaning the player can craft it before even venturing underground. It can also function as a decent weapon early in the game as it deals 5 damage, 1 higher than the Copper Pickaxe.

Its best Modifier is Light for harvesting purposes, or Legendary for combat purposes.
