The Copper Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe. Its alternate ore counterpart is the Tin Pickaxe.

The Copper Pickaxe has a -1 range attribute, which means it can only mine 4 blocks to the sides, and 2 blocks above and below the player. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can only mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which requires a pickaxe with at least 50% pickaxe power, e.g. a Tungsten Pickaxe).

The Copper Pickaxe is usually the first pickaxe that the player will obtain, as newly created non-Journey Mode(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) characters spawn with this item in their second inventory slot.

Additionally, the Copper Pickaxe can be purchased from the Merchant for 5 SC.

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.
