The Cactus Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe. It has the same pickaxe power as the Copper and Tin Pickaxes, but is slightly slower in terms of mining speed. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can only mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which requires a pickaxe with at least 50% pickaxe power, e.g. a Tungsten Pickaxe).
Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.
- The Cactus Pickaxe does not require ores or an Anvil to craft, which means that it can be obtained even before venturing underground.
