The Silver Shortsword is an early game metal shortsword. It is slightly weaker than its Tungsten alternative.

Like all shortswords, the Silver Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on Desktop version Desktop, and horizontally in front of the player on Console version Console, Old-gen console version Old-gen console, Mobile version Mobile, and 3DS version3DS, instead of an arc. This makes it almost useless against flying or jumping enemies, although its high attack rate makes it somewhat effective against weaker fighter type enemies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Silver Shortsword is the only Shortsword (along with its Tungsten alternative) that uses only 6 bars to craft, instead of the usual 7.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.0.5: Crafting recipe corrected, the sword is now craftable.
