The Reaver Shark is a pre-hardmode Pickaxe that can be obtained in the Ocean while fishing. It's strong enough to mine Meteorite and Crimtane/Demonite ores.
Reaver Shark - Terraria 1.2

Reaver Shark - Terraria 1.2.4 Guide New Pickaxe! - GullofDoom


This is a solid pickaxe, being one tier higher than the Gold Pickaxe , though one tier lower than the Deathbringer /Nightmare ones.

  • Prior to the 1.4 update, it used to be the strongest pickaxe in pre-hardmode, being strong enough to mine Cobalt and Palladium. With the nerf, it now can only mine up to Meteorite.
  • Even with the nerf, it is still recommended to get it rather than crafting a Gold/Platinum pickaxe, as it saves up resources and time spent spelunking.
  • It is one of the few tools that can be obtained via fishing.

Update Info


  • Pickaxe power reduced from 100% down to 56%.
  • Critical strike chance reduced from 12% to 4%.
  • Use time increased from 18 to 22.


  • Added to the game.
