General Information

Terraria_Silver Broadsword

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

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

Additionally, when Lead is present in a world, it is not necessary to create a Silver Broadsword because they both deal the same amount of damage.

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