Animation of the Falcon Blade. Note its tiny range.

The Falcon Blade is a pre-Hardmode broadsword that has a 6.25*1/16 (6.25%) chance to be found in an Iron or Mythril CrateDesktop and Mobile versions. It has a very short range, yet high attack speed and decent knockback, which makes it useful until late pre-Hardmode. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Falcon Blade is capable of autoswing.

Its best modifier is Legendary.


  • With sufficient fishing preparations and some patience, the Falcon Blade can be obtained very early on. It surpasses even the Light's Bane/Blood Butcherer in damage.
  • It can be very useful while fighting the Eater of Worlds as the high swing speed and good base damage allow you to destroy all of the worm's segments very quickly.


  • The Falcon Blade is a crossover item also found in the indie side-scrolling real-time strategy video game Pixel Piracy.
  • It can almost be considered a pre-Hardmode Cutlass, sharing many of the same features, pros, and cons, as well as the similar designs.
  • The Falcon Blade has a design that resembles a falchion, a one-handed, single-edged sword of medieval European origin.
    • In addition to this, the words falchion and falcon bear a close resemblance to each other.
