The Metal Spear is an improved version of the Wooden Spear and is only available after being researched at the Research Table. While it costs a total of three Metal Ore to craft, its high damage and durability makes up for it. It takes a total of 15 stabs to kill the Shark with the spear, 2 stabs to let the shark go off your raft, and three stabs to kill Lurkers.
The Metal Spear has twice the durability of the Wooden Spear, and deals twice as much damage. This makes it a significant upgrade over its wooden counterpart, and is likely to be the main weapon that players use in the early to mid game.
The Metal Spear has a quick attack animation, so it's quite feasible as an end-game weapon, even after acquiring the Machete or Titanium Sword, as the both has a slower attack animation. It's easier to land a hit on an attacking shark while in the water with the Metal Spear, potentially avoiding damage.
- A stronger version of the Wooden Spear used to attack enemies.
