Cactus is a non-metallic tool material created by putting a cactus into the part builder, that applies the Prickly or Spiky trait. These traits will allows it to increase its damage as durability decreases. As such, it is often used as bindings or guards on weapons. For bows, it is slightly better than Wood, while retaining the trait above.

If any mobs attack you while having the Spiky trait, the tool itself will reflect the damage to the mobs.


Cacti are generated in the Desert and Mesa biome. They can be mined by hand.
