Pirate King's Cutlass

Pirate King's Cutlass Cutlass Bolt Used only by the pirates who would make themselves kings, this cutlass is said to be cursed as each Pirate King seems to be killed rather unexpectedly.

The Cutlass is a very strong DPS sword, but not as much as it once was. Not taking status effects into account, after the buffs to Halls Tops, it beats Sword of Acclaim up to approximately 95 DEF on Knight and Paladin, and Sword of Splendor until 20 DEF. On Warrior, this is even higher, Acclaim only surpassing Cutlass at 125 DEF, though Splendor passes it at a low 25 DEF.

If one is used to playing with defense and range reduction, then this is a very good replacement for high-tier swords, assuming you don’t have Splendor. The speed increase also allows for faster rushing.

With Patch X.20.0 (Dec 2017), the Cutlass was buffed. Originally, this item had a rate of fire of 120%, a projectile speed of 100, a range of 3.25, no on equip stat changes, 500 feed power, dealt 184-231 damage, and only gave a 4% XP Bonus.
