Rapier is a weapon added by the Tinkers' Construct mod. It can be crafted, modified, and repaired at the Tool Station or Tool Forge.

The Rapier ignores all armor, making it one of the best weapons against tanks like other players or the Walker Boss.


To craft, place a Tool Rod, Crossbar, and a Sword Blade in the correct slots of the Rapier tab in the Tool Station or Tool Forge.


There are many different combinations that can be used to craft a Rapier. Here are few examples:

Rapier creation

Finishing the creation of a Rapier in the Tool Station

Special Perks Edit

  • Right click to activate a backwards leap (backpedal).
  • All attacks ignore armor and blocking. (Extremely useful in PvP, especially against tanks)
  • Attacks while sprinting deal 150% damage.
  • Attacks from the rapier result in a shorter "stun time," so the rapier can attack very quickly.

Tinkers Construct - Adding Modifications

Adding a ball of moss to the rapier, which makes it automatically repair over time (Faster in Sunlight)

If you add more than one of the same type of modifier it will use up the next modifier slot and will upgrade the tool/weapon further in that field. e.g. Adding more than the max amount of quartz for one modifier slot (72) it will use up another modifier slot but raise the max amount of quartz to 144.


  • Rapiers have a low durability and thereful become the status "broken" quite fast; it is therefore advised to use high durability materials for it or add a Moss Ball as a Modifier
  • When the Rapier is broken, the "Backpedal" ability is still usable.
  • The Rapier cannot be enchanted using the enchanting table, although you may add specific enchantments like Soul Tether using an enchanted book and an anvil.
  • A Rapier can only be repaired in a Tool Station/Tool Forge using the material the sword blade is made of.
  • Because of a bug in the game with the "Backpedal" ability the Rapier can be used to achieve incredibly high jumps with external programs, that simulate a lot of clicks at once.
