The Bone Sword is a unique broadsword with impressive early-game damage dropped by Skeletons. It can only be obtained that way and has a very low chance to drop. It appears to be of the same size as other early weapons.

Notes

  • This sword can be obtained quite early in the game, its damage in comparison to other early weapons makes it a good choice for new characters.
  • Even though this weapon has a low chance to drop, the player will likely eventually find it by exploring the stone layer enough.
  • The sword will drop from all graphical variants of Skeletons, although it seems to be slightly more common from those with a sword embedded in their skull.

​Update Info

v1.2

  • Added to the game.
