The Fossil Pickaxe is a pickaxe crafted from Sturdy Fossils, or found in the Underground Desert. It can mine ores up to Demonite Ore and Crimtane Ore. It has 55% pickaxe power, the same as the Gold Pickaxe, and slightly lower than the Platinum Pickaxe which has 59% pickaxe power. However, it has a Mining Speed of 14, which is faster than both.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Since Desert Fossils can be mined with any pickaxe or explosives, it can be a powerful upgrade in the early game.
  • Its effective mining speed is on par with the Deathbringer Pickaxe for most blocks, at 4.29 dirt blocks per second, or 2.14 stone blocks per second, except it cannot mine Hellstone or stronger blocks. It is slower than the Bone Pickaxe, which can mine the same blocks at 5.45 and 2.73 blocks per second, respectively. For stone blocks or stronger, the Molten Pickaxe is the strongest option before Hardmode, at 3.33 blocks per second.
