The Molten Pickaxe is the best pre-Hardmode pickaxe and capable of mining Hardmode ores, thus being a very essential tool. Console VersionOld-gen console version3DS version It has the convenient side benefits of emitting light and inflicting the On Fire! debuff on enemies struck, making it potentially useful even after obtaining a Hardmode drill or pickaxe.

The Molten Pickaxe can destroy most blocks in one hit. However, its mining speed is very slow, making it slower than Tungsten Pickaxe and above at mining the weakest block types. It is faster than most pre-Hardmode pickaxes when mining stones, excluding the Bone Pickaxe and Reaver Shark Console VersionOld-gen console version3DS version (except after 1.4.0.1). This stays true for harder blocks, such as Ebonstone and Crimstone. See the chart below for more details.

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