Fetid Baghnakhs' attack animation. Note the short range of attack but high speed and damage output.

Fetid Baghnakhs are a Hardmode melee weapon with a short range but an exceptionally low use time. They have a 20% chance of being dropped by Crimson Mimics.

Their best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop and Mobile versions This weapon only receives 25% of any melee speed bonus.
  • Desktop and Mobile versionsThe Fetid Baghnakhs are tied with the Psycho Knife for fastest melee weapon in the game. However, given the Baghnakhs' 75% melee speed bonus reduction compared to the Psycho Knife's 66% speed reduction, the Psycho Knife is capable of reaching higher speeds.
  • Console VersionThe Fetid Baghnakhs are the fastest melee weapon in the game.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Fetid Baghnakhs can be considered an upgrade to the pre-Hardmode Bladed Gloves, considering the similar exceptional speed and short range.
  • With melee damage-increasing accessories and armor, this item can reach 3000+ DPS. When attacking enemies with multiple segments, such as worms, even 6000+ DPS is possible.
  • Console Version Various speed modifiers can reach 30 swings per second (3000–4000 DPS) with 51% attack speed, or 60 attacks per second (7000–10000 DPS) at 101% attack speed. Stacked accessories with the Violent modifier can push its swing animation down to a single frame.
    • The Light modifier will increase speed by another 19%. The -14% knockback will not matter somewhat because of the short range.
  • The Baghnakhs' lack of range generally means risking high damage, especially against more resilient enemies. Therefore, it is recommended to have increased invulnerability time (e.g. using a Cross Necklace) and be immune to knockback (using a shield) when using them.
    • Size-increasing modifiers like Large, Massive, Dangerous, and Legendary can make up for the short range.
  • Given enough defense and high speed, the Fetid Baghnakhs prove useful for many boss fights like against Plantera and Golem, and most notably The Destroyer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bagh nakhs are clawed weapons from India designed to be easily concealed, hence the weapon's small size. 'Bagh' means 'Tiger' in Hindi and 'Nakh's means 'Nail's in Marathi.
  • The most well-known usage of the weapon was by the first Maratha emperor Shivaji who used a bichuwa and bagh nakh to defeat the Bijapur general Afzal Khan in the year 1659 CE.
