Using the Zombie Arm to attack a Target Dummy.

The Zombie Arm is a pre-Hardmode sword that deals slightly higher damage than a Tungsten Broadsword, but has less range, knockback, and speed. The Zombie Arm has a 1/250 (0.4%) chance of being dropped by Zombies, Frozen Zombies, and Raincoat Zombies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

  • Some zombies in Expert Mode and Master Mode appear to wield this item. Such zombies deal more damage and have increased melee range than those not carrying Zombie Arms. However, this does not increase the chances of obtaining the weapon from such zombies.


  • Despite its relatively low drop chance, the high abundance of Zombies can see this weapon obtained fairly early on.
    • If collected, it can be a powerful weapon during early pre-Hardmode, often up until gold or platinum is obtained.


  • The Zombie Arm appears to have a Shackle on the wrist, another special drop from Zombies.
