Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Various speed modifiers can reach 30 swings per second (3-4k DPS) with 51% attack speed, or 60 attacks per second (7-10k 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.
  • This weapon can devastate The Destroyer or other worms, but its short range means risking high damage in the process.
  • Using any of the shield accessories that negate knockback (Cobalt Shield, Obsidian Shield, Ankh Shield or Paladin's Shield) with this weapon will prove to be useful because of the lack of range of this weapon.
  • This weapon is also very useful for bosses like Plantera and Golem, with the Cross Necklace and good speed modifiers, one can easily win the DPS match with the boss.
  • This weapon is exceptionally useful against swarms of non-flying enemies because it can deal high damage quickly.
  • Size-increasing modifiers like Large, Massive, and Dangerous can make up for the short range.

Trivia[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.
  • Bagh nakh are clawed weapons from India designed to be easily concealed, hence the weapon's small size. Their name means "tiger's claw" in Hindi.
