Terraria (Wiki): Gold Broadsword

General Information

Terraria_Gold Broadsword

The Gold Broadsword is an ore-based broadsword that deals damage to enemies. It is the second most potent broadsword and can be used to craft the Flymeal.

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

Despite not dealing much damage, the Gold Broadsword is just as potent as, if not more potent than, the War Axe of the Night due to its faster speed.

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