Terraria (Wiki): Platinum Broadsword


Everything you need to know

General Information

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

The Platinum Broadsword, like other broadswords, has limited range and moves in an arc motion. Combat-wise, the Platinum 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 Platinum Broadsword is just as potent as, if not more potent than, the War Axe of the Night due to its faster speed.

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