The Iron Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe that is stronger than the Copper and Tin Pickaxes, and slightly weaker than the alternate ore version, the Lead Pickaxe. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which can be mined with a Tungsten Pickaxe or better).

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

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Iron and Lead Pickaxes only require 3 Wood to craft, unlike the rest of the early-game pickaxes which all require 4 Wood.
  • This item may be the very first item in the game, judging by the item ID.

History[edit | edit source]
