Cleanup This article is need of a clean-up. You can help out Hexxit Wiki by re-organizing parts of the article, checking grammar and spelling, and doing other helpful things to correct the article.

The goal of this article is to provide a comprehensive look at the damage numbers of every weapon in the game, as well as block numbers for armor.

The highest (survival) melee unarmored unenchanted damage is 9, done by the Diamond Giant Sword and the Ender Giant Sword . Some weapons like the Poison Staff can hit for a higher damage total, but the damage is spread out over a period of time(poison or fire damage).

Although the Diamond and Ender Giant Swords do the most damage(9) out of the weapons made at a Crafting Table, a Manyullyn Cleaver with max damage (using a Diamond and Block of Gold to be able to add another modifier and then adding 288 Nether Quartz) deals 21 damage (not a crit) on a mob with 0 defence, while a Sharpness V Diamond/Ender Giant Sword does about 10 to 22 damage (again, not a crit) on a mob with 0 defence. So overall, a max damage Manyullyn Cleaver is better in the long run.

NOTICE: Many creepers and skeletons were harmed in the testing of those three weapons.

The strongest melee weapon in the game is the Bane of Pigs, a frying pan from Tinker's Construct, which will one-shot any mob with approximately 21474830 damage. The Bane of Pigs is a joke weapon and is intended to be accessible only from creative mode or the NEI menu. However, due to some incompatibility with Better Dungeons mod, it is obtainable via loot chest in Battle Towers.
