Iron Franciscas are craftable consumable Pre-Hardmode rogue weapons that are the direct counterpart to the Lead Tomahawks. They throw gravity affected axes that travel a short distance before falling to the ground. Each axe's damage has a 2x damage increase for the first 0.25 seconds after being thrown. All axes thrown instantly break upon contact with an enemy or block.

Performing a stealth strike with Iron Franciscas causes the resulting francisca to pierce up to six enemies.

The Iron Francisca cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.
