The Brimstone Sword is a craftable Hardmode broadsword that autoswings. It inflicts the Brimstone Flames debuff and summons a small brimstone geyser when an enemy is hit with the blade. When using alternate fire, the sword is thrown in a manner similar to that of the Ichor Spear. The thrown sword can travel a long distance before being affected by gravity and pierces infinitely. On hitting an enemy, it will create a short lingering explosion that deals 50% of the weapon's damage.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

  • Only the left-click attack receives true melee boosts.
  • Due to the relative ease of crafting this sword, as well as how early it is obtainable, this weapon will remain a very powerful choice well into Hardmode.
  • Aquatic Scourge takes only 10% damage from the Brimstone Sword's explosions. Additionally, the explosions' pierce is set to 2 once they hit one of its segments.


  • This item was previously known as the "Profaned Sword". This was likely changed in order to prevent any kind of unwanted connections with Providence, the Profaned Goddess.
