Special Blast

The First Mate is a Hardmode melee weapon that is found in the Pirate Chest on the right side Ocean, which must be opened using a Secret Key.

When using Use / Attack, the first swing is overhand, then the second is underhand, and the final swing is a slash that deals double damage.

When using Open / Activate, it fires a short-range blast that can pierce infinity. If this attack is used after 2 normal swings of the sword, a special sword blast is fired/swung, which also deals double damage.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size.


  • The weapon always remembers which of the 3 swings it is on, even if it is tossed out of the inventory.
    • The only situation in which it resets to the first swing is after firing the sword in shotgun mode.
  • When the special attack is ready, a small animation appears of two blue spheres quickly crashing into each other.
  • The screen will shake upon using the special attack.
