For the weapon type, see Spears.
Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.
- In Celebrationmk10 worlds, the Spear can be found with the normally-incompatible Legendary modifier. The size boost will not take effect, though it is still the best modifier possible.
- Out of all the spears, it is tied with the Obsidian Swordfish and Tonbogiri for dealing the third most knockback (beaten by the Ghastly Glaive and North Pole).
- While stationary, it can hit a Zombie twice, and while walking towards it, three times — at 10-15 damage per stab, compared to just 4 damage with a Wooden Sword.
- It can hold back multiple Eaters of Souls or Crimera at once, and can be useful when traveling through the Corruption or the Crimson.
- It is useful in early-game for the first enemies that are encountered like Demon Eyes, since it can hold them back with knockback. Opening a door or standing by an entrance while using it can hold back Zombies and Demon Eyes, and can be useful surviving the first few nights before getting better weapons.
- It cannot be obtained from Wooden Crates, despite the fact that many other similarly rare items found in Wooden Chests can.
