The Tungsten Shortsword is the Silver Shortsword's slightly more effective alternate, and it can be crafted at an Anvil with 6 Tungsten Bars.

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, although its high attack rate makes it effective against weaker fighter type enemies.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.
