The Cutlass is a rare Hardmode sword that has a 0.5% (1 in 200) chance to be dropped by Pirate enemies in a Pirate Invasion. It has a higher chance to drop from Pirate Captains and the Flying Dutchman (2% and 10% respectively). The Cutlass deals good damage and can be swung continuously at very high speed.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Assuming the player never kills a Pirate Captain or Flying Dutchman, the odds of getting at least one Cutlass over the course of a Pirate Invasion are about 45%.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Old-gen console versionMobile Version3DS version It has a dark outline and transparent pixels in its blade, so it looks deformed against dark backgrounds.
  • It resembles a Scimitar rather than a Cutlass.
  • It can almost be considered a Hardmode Falcon Blade, sharing many of the same features, pros and cons, as well as the similar designs.
