Copper Ore is an early game ore, which spawns on the surface as well as in the Underground and Cavern layers. It is the weakest and most easily obtained tier of ore in the game. Its primary use is to make Copper Bars, which can be used to create the Copper tier of equipment. The equivalent of Copper Ore is Tin Ore, which will sometimes replace Copper in a world. Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version3DS Version Copper Ore has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from slimes.

New characters will always start with Copper tools, regardless of the ore types present in the world.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to Tin, new players may want to avoid wasting effort trying to mine Copper Ore as Wood/Cactus armor and tools easily outweigh the usefulness of this ore. However, it is used in some decorative recipes.
