  • Despite its description, the Antler Pickaxe is the weakest pickaxe in the game, however, it is sufficient for mining Iron
  • When the Antler Pickaxe is acquired, Hugin will say "Now go forth and strike the earth!". This is a reference to the new game message in the game, Dwarf Fortress.
  • Due to being repairable at a workbench and capable of mining Iron it can even be preferrable over other pickaxes for this
  • The attack hitbox reaches below the player's feet allowing to dig down. This easily causes a 33% damage penalty for hitting the ground when not above or very close to the target.
