The Dark Matter Pickaxe is an unbreakable pickaxe made of Dark Matter that is capable of blistering through stone and ore alike, decimating obsidian to dust in seconds. It is the only thing (other than the Red Matter Pickaxe) capable of breaking a Dark Matter Block (in any reasonable amount of time).

  • The Dark Matter Pickaxe is not enchantable.

The main charge ability of the Dark Matter Pickaxe is free to use: it 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, and it may even find things you didn't know were there.

All Dark Matter Tools have Two Charge levels, increasing the breaking speed of the tool by a factor of the charge.

Secondly its regular pick ( Left Click ) has 4 different functions. Toggled with C (or G in some mod packs) 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.
