The Tin Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe that is weaker than the Iron and Lead Pickaxes. Compared to its alternate ore version, the Copper Pickaxe, it has the same pickaxe power, but deals 1 more damage, is slightly faster in terms of mining speed, and has a longer range by 1 tile. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can only mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which requires a pickaxe with at least 50% pickaxe power, e.g. a Tungsten Pickaxe).
Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.
