Animation of the Mandible Blade.

The Mandible Blade is a powerful early-game melee weapon capable of autoswing. It has a 1/50 (2%) chance of being dropped by Antlion Chargers and Desktop version Antlion Swarmers.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Mandible Blade can be helpful to newer players, as most other early-game weapons do not autoswing.
  • It may be a good choice to farm this weapon early game, as it remains viable up until the Light's Bane or the Blood Butcherer is available. However, if the Christmas event is active, the Candy Cane Sword is a much better option. It can be obtained from Presents and has better stats overall, although it swings slower and does not have autoswing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its upper half resembles the Antlion Mandible crafting material, and the Mandible itself resembles one half of the Antlion Charger's mouth and one of its eyes.
  • The internal name of this item is AntlionClaw.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.3.2:
    • Increased knockback from 2.5 to 4.5.
    • Decreased use time from 20 to 18.
