The Falcon Blade attacking a Target Dummy. Note its small 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 Crate. 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, Mobile version Mobile version, Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, and tModLoader version tModLoader 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.
