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

Like all shortswords, this sword has a very limited range and attacks with a horizontal stabbing motion instead of an arc, which makes it almost useless against flying or jumping enemies. Its high attack rate makes it effective against some fighter type enemies.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.
