The Deathbringer Pickaxe is a relatively early-game Pickaxe. Its Corruption counterpart is the Nightmare Pickaxe.

It has a faster mining speed by one and mines Crimstone/Dungeon Bricks/Ebonstone/Hellstone/Pearlstone blocks in one less hit. (3 Instead of 4)

The Deathbringer Pickaxe, Nightmare Pickaxe and Molten Pickaxe are the only Pre-Hardmode pickaxes able to mine Crimstone, Dungeon Bricks, Ebonstone, Hellstone and Obsidian.

Desktop version The Deathbringer Pickaxe can only mine Dungeon Bricks that are at 0 depth or higher. 100% Pickaxe power (a Molten Pickaxe or better) is required to mine Dungeon Bricks in the Underground Dungeon.

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Compared to the Nightmare Pickaxe, the Deathbringer Pickaxe has superior power & mines faster making it the better pickaxe.
  • The Deathbringer Pickaxe is faster than the higher-tier Molten Pickaxe at mining blocks requiring One or Three hits (Please look at table above) while it is slower at mining stronger blocks requiring Two hits. Therefore, once the player has acquired the Molten Pickaxe, it is advisable to keep the Deathbringer Pickaxe around so they can be swapped as needed. Rapid swapping is possible by selecting the pick which is farther right in the inventory and then holding shift to swap to the other pick as needed.
    • After reaching Hardmode and acquiring a Cobalt/Palladium Drill or Pickaxe, however, you can discard both of your pickaxes as these are stronger and faster than both the Molten and Deathbringer pickaxes.
