General Information

Terraria_Copper Broadsword

The Copper Broadsword is an ore-based broadsword that deals damage to enemies.

The Copper Broadsword, like other broadswords, has limited range and moves in an arc motion. Combat-wise, the Copper Broadsword, despite being the weakest broadsword is effective against fighter-type enemies such as monsters, slimes, jumping zombies, and flying enemies because of its knockback and damage output.

Additionally, other swords like the Ebonwood Sword and Shadewood Sword are more accessible to obtain early on and deal more damage than the Copper Broadsword.

The Copper Broadsword is best modified with Legendary to improve all stats.
