The Lead Shortsword is an early game metal shortsword. Its alternate ore counterpart is the Iron Shortsword.

Like all shortswords, the Lead Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile, and horizontally in front of the player on Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version, instead of an arc. This makes it almost useless against flying or jumping enemies, although its high attack rate makes it somewhat effective against weaker fighter type enemies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
