The Pickaxe Axe is a Hardmode pickaxe and axe combination, which can be crafted after all three Mechanical Bosses have been defeated. Pickaxe Axe is an alternative to the Drax. Appearances and sounds aside, the two tools are functionally identical. It is able to mine any block other than Lihzahrd Bricks.

Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Pickaxe Axe is a Hallowed-related item. However, unlike other Hallowed items, it does not emit light when swung.
  • The tooltip references a "Hamdrill", which is an item that doesn't exist in-game. However, it may be referring to the old name of the Drax, as of 1.1 it was called a "Hamdrax". It also retains the appearance of a drill, hence the "drill" appended on to "ham".
