The Gold Hammer is an early-game hammer. It has an alternate ore version, the Platinum Hammer. Like all hammers, it is used to remove background walls and create sloped tiles and half tiles.

Its best modifier is Legendary. However, due to rounding, Legendary, Light, Deadly, Agile, Quick, and Nasty provide equal boosts to mining speed for this tool.

  • Despite being a higher-tierd item compared to the Silver, Lead, and Iron hammers, it is actually slower than these hammers. So players should avoid crafting the Gold Hammer.
