The Nightmare Pickaxe is a relatively early-game Pickaxe. Its Crimson counterpart is the Deathbringer Pickaxe, and therefore, both can mine Hellstone, Obsidian, Ebonstone, Crimstone, Desert Fossil and Dungeon Bricks.
Its best Modifier is Light for harvesting purposes, and Legendary for combat purposes.
- While the Molten Pickaxe power allows it to mine stronger blocks in fewer hits, its slower tool speed means that the Nightmare Pickaxe remains faster for mining blocks that can be easily destroyed in one or two hits.
- 1.0.5: Damage reduced from 11 to 9.
