Cutlass has autoswing.

All blocks have autoswing.

Autoswing (also known as auto-swing, autofire, auto-fire, or auto-use) is a property that can apply to usable items, such as weapons and tools, where in the item is automatically reused when the Use / Attack key/button is held down. In contrast, weapons without autoswing require that the player repeatedly clicks/presses in order to use them repeatedly.

For a list of weapons with autoswing, use the sort feature of the Autoswing column on the List of weapons page or see the Category:Autoswing items.



  • Autoswing is a very useful attribute that should be considered when comparing weapons as it allows maximizing the number of hits. For example, all other statistics aside, an autoswing weapon that deals 30 base damage can be preferred over a non-autoswing weapon that deals 34 base damage.
  • Items without autoswing can still be swung automatically via third-party software like auto clickers. Note that this may be considered cheating.
