Using the Bone Sword to attack a Target Dummy.

The Bone Sword is a pre-Hardmode sword that, while rare, can be a useful weapon if obtained early in the game. Compared to other early-game swords, it swings slower and has slightly less knockback, but deals significantly more damage. The Bone Sword has a 1/200 (0.5%) chance of being dropped by Skeletons and Spore Skeletons in the Cavern layer.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
