The Copper Pickaxe is the first tier of Pickaxes, just below the Cactus Pickaxe. Like all pickaxes, it is used to mine a majority of blocks and ores. A newly created character will spawn with a Copper Pickaxe. It has a reach of 4 blocks (8 feet). It can also be bought at the Merchant.

Notes

  • It may be a much better alternative than the shortsword, as greater damage can be inflicted in a short period of time while the short sword only works by taps, and either way they still do the same amount of damage.
  • You get the Copper Shortsword and the Copper Axe along with this.
