The Lead Pickaxe is an early-game Pickaxe, and the alternate ore version of the Iron Pickaxe. Compared to the Iron Pickaxe, the Lead Pickaxe is actually stronger, as it has 3% higher pickaxe power, deals 1 extra damage, and has a slightly faster mining speed. 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.
