Tools

Tools are items which help the player obtain materials, collect and build blocks and fluids, add or remove wire, or help the player move about the environment. Tools are not placed, but some are used as weapons while others have hotkeys. Left Shift is often used to "smart switch" to a useful tool based on what is under the cursor.

There is another type of "grapple" that drops from skeletron sometimes I don't know the statistics on it but I'll post the name of it later. It looks like a hand though.
