We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible.

The Tungsten Pickaxe is a third-tier pickaxe that has the same pickaxe power as the Bone Pickaxe. It is the earliest pickaxe in the game that is capable of mining Meteorite. It has an alternate ore version, the Silver Pickaxe, which is notably weaker, as it cannot mine Meteorite. The Tungsten Pickaxe has a slightly longer attack range than the Iron and Lead Pickaxes. It also requires one less hit to mine blocks compared to all the previous pickaxes, though its mining speed is significantly slower.

Its best Modifier is Light for harvesting purposes, or Legendary for combat purposes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When digging stone-like blocks, it is more efficient to use a Lead or Silver Pickaxe, as they will dig faster, despite needing one more hit.
  • When digging dirt-like blocks, it is faster to use the Tungsten Pickaxe.
