Everything you need to know
The Iron Broadsword is an early-game metal broadsword that performs a short-ranged swinging motion in an arc, damaging enemies behind and in front of the player. It is the alternate ore version of the Lead Broadsword.
One enemy can be pierced at a normal range, although an infinite amount is possible should they line up. The Iron Broadsword also has a short reach of three tiles radius. It is incapable of autoswing.
Some weapons emit light while also being capable of inflicting damage against enemies behind a cover, but the Iron Broadsword is not included.
Since the Iron Broadsword can swing above the player, it is viable for flying and jumping enemies. The resulting damage can also be enhanced by consuming any Flask type.
