The Mandible Blade is a powerful early game melee weapon that can Auto-swing. It has a 1/50 (2%) chance of being dropped by the Antlion Charger enemy.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Mandible Blade can be helpful to newer players, as most other early-game weapons do not auto-swing.
  • It may be a good choice to farm this weapon early game, as it remains viable up until the Light's Bane or the Blood Butcherer is available. However, if the Christmas event is active, the Candy Cane Sword is a much better option. It can be obtained from Presents and has better stats overall, though it swings slower and does not have Autoswing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its upper half resembles the Antlion Mandible crafting material, and the Mandible itself resembles one half of the Antlion Charger's mouth and one of its eyes.
  • In the source code, this item is also referred to as "melee claw".
