- Not to be confused with the crafting station, Meat Grinder.
The Flesh Grinder is a mid-early game Hammer obtainable after the Brain of Cthulhu has been defeated. Like its Corruption counterpart, The Breaker, it is much more useful as a weapon than previous hammers, dealing good damage and swinging continuously when the attack button is held down. Compared to The Breaker, the Flesh Grinder deals lower damage, but is faster and has slightly more range.
Its best Modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.
