Pickaxes are tools which are used to mine dirt, stone, ores, and other blocks. They can also be used to harvest objects that aren't solid foreground blocks, such as Heart Crystals, Shadow Orbs, or furniture. The only objects which pickaxes cannot be used on are background walls and trees, which are collected by hammers and axes, respectively.

Newly spawned players will start with a Copper Pickaxe which may have a random prefix.

Technical info

Range

Red border = Copper Pickaxe
Purple border = most pickaxes below Chlorophyte
Blue border = Picksaw and Chlorophyte Pickaxe
Green border = Spectre Pickaxe

Depending on which tool is being used, pickaxes can have a range of between 2 blocks (4 feet) vertically/4 blocks (8 feet) horizontally and 6 blocks (12 feet) vertically/8 blocks (16 feet) horizontally.

Different pickaxes also have maximum levels of ore which they can mine. For a full list of which pickaxe can mine which ore, refer to the table below.

Pickaxes generally have high speed (which also affects mining speed) but deal little damage relative to equivalently tiered weapons. All pickaxes have the autoreuse property, and draw from the melee table of prefixes.
