Not to be confused with the Hardmode spear, Obsidian Swordfish, which is also obtained by fishing.
Animation of the Swordfish. Note its piercing abilities.

The Swordfish is a spear obtainable through fishing in the Ocean biome. Chance to catch it is 1/60 with 50% Fishing Power and 1/30 with 100% Fishing Power.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the fact that its name is the “Swordfish”, it's actually a spear rather than a sword.
  • Due to how big the sprite of the weapon is, it appears to go through the player's shoulder when attacking with it.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon is easy to acquire early, relative to its strength, and can sustain new players for a good while.
  • Although, due to the short range, it is not advisable to bring into tougher battles.
