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 Gold Pickaxe or better). On the Mobile only.pngMobile version, it can be purchased from the Merchant for 20 Silver Coin.

Its best Modifier is Light for harvesting purposes, and Legendary for combat purposes.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item may be the very first item in the game, judging by the item ID.
