Animation of the Cactus Sword.

The Cactus Sword is an early-game sword. It deals more damage compared to early weapons (dealing the same damage as the Copper Broadsword) and it has more range. It appears much more robust and dangerous compared to wooden and other early-game swords, and can be very useful until one finds Silver or Tungsten to forge a more effective sword.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
