A lead pipe is a short blunt melee weapon.

Usage

The lead pipe can hit up to 2 enemies at a time (with multi-hit enabled), dealing a maximum of 1.2 damage to enemies (unless a critical hit) from up to 1.15 tiles away at an attack speed of 0.93.

The weapon can be attached to the Back slot for quick access and weight reduction.

Pros Cons
  • Highest minimum and maximum damage ranges for short blunt weapons.
  • Highest durability of short blunt weapons.
  • Highest critical chance of short blunt weapons.
  • Highest condition of short blunt weapons.
  • Second-highest condition chance of short blunt weapons.
  • Third-longest range of short blunt weapons.
  • Not too difficult to find.
  • Second-lowest swing speed of short blunt weapons.
  • Low knockback.
  • Cannot be repaired.

Condition

The lead pipe has a maximum condition of 15. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the short blunt and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (20 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the short blunt and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and short blunt skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Durability
Maintenance skill Weapon skill Durability lower chance
0 0 1/20 (5%)
0 4 1/22 (5%)
0 8 1/24 (4%)
4 0 1/24 (4%)
8 0 1/28 (4%)
4 4 1/26 (4%)
4 8 1/28 (4%)
8 8 1/32 (3%)
10 10 1/34 (3%)
