The Dark Matter Pickaxe is an unbreakable tool that is capable of blasting through stone and ore alike, decimating Obsidian to dust in seconds. It is the only thing capable of breaking a Dark Matter Block (along with the Red Matter counterparts). Its charge ability is free to use, which allows you to destroy up to 16 blocks of one ore-type material in a single right click. If you fail to click directly on an ore block, it will actively "search out" an ore block in your direct vicinity. It may even find things you didn't know were there. When this ability is used, the pickaxe creates a Loot Ball that falls away from your body, which you must then retrieve to attain the materials you mined.

All Dark Matter Tools have Two Charge levels, increasing the breaking speed of the block being mined by a factor of the charge. The "V" key is the default for charging. "Shift + V" will remove the charge from this item.

Secondly its regular pick (left click) has 4 different functions.

Toggled with "c" they are:

  1. Standard: breaks one block at a time
  2. 3x tall shot: breaks 3 blocks at once vertically
  3. 3x wideshot: breaks 3 blocks at once horizontally
  4. 3x longshot: breaks 3 blocks at once in a line infront of you

These "3x" modes take almost the same picking time as a single block so it is great for speeding up your mining, though not as effective as a Destruction Catalyst or a Catalytic Lens.


3 x 139,264 (Dark Matter) + 2 x 8,192 (Diamond) = 434,176 EMC


Upgrade to a Red Matter Pickaxe which is slightly faster.
