- Since the Molten Pickaxe harvests Hellstone quicker than the Nightmare Pickaxe, players might want to invest their first Hellstone Bars into this, allowing them to gather more Hellstone at a quicker speed.
- Molten Pickaxe and Nightmare Pickaxe are the only pre-hardmode picks that don't require wood to craft.
- Originally, the Molten Pickaxe was made from Meteorite Bars, and was still the highest tier pickaxe. However it belonged to the Meteorite Tier. Hellstone Bars were not craftable yet and the Underworld existed but was pointless (except for money). However, this was in the Alpha version, and has been changed now.
- The Molten Pickaxe has a 1 in 10 chance to set enemies On Fire. On Fire does approximately 2 damage per second.
- Now only requires 20 Hellstone Bars instead of 35.
- Has a chance to give enemies the On Fire! debuff.
