    That doesn't mean it actually does that; it's just what I always thought it did.
    Didn't sledgehammer kill automata and rapier was used to kill live mobs? I believe newbies without guns use them for that purpose. Not entirely sure, though. :)

    Save save your onyx for a more valuable tool, such as a shovel, ect.
    You can use a gun to do the same thing that a rapier can do. (If what I think it does is correct)
    I have a regular rapier and since it is useless to me I will not be upgrading. :)

    It does piercing damage as opposed to the sledge's blunt damage.

    I think it damages ORGANIC enemies more.

    This is correct.

    Tesla Club and Sledge do more damage to automata, where as organic mobs take increased damage from rapiers.

    Onyx Rapiers are collector's items

    They do more damage than their diamond and iron counterparts too

    If the onyx sledge is anything to base off of, the rapier would also crit a LOT more

    Gravedig bump; but I feel like this could be some info on it.

    Being a wasteful player, I used some onyx to create an onyx rapier to compare with my onyx sledgehammer.

    Main difference? While the onyx rapier renders most terrapi into an exotic, unhealthy kebab; the main difference seems to be that they don't crit at all. When you use an onyx sledge, explosions are very common (and while critting can be a hassle since it leaves behind a drop you should get automatically) and help better when fighting groups of mobs since the crits do AoE damage.

    I'm not sure if rapiers intentionally being unable to crit is how it was designed or if it was a bug. I have Combat level 8 on my account.

    @mikelaurence any clarification?

    I approve of rapiers NOT having crit

    I prefer to use the prestigious onyx cane as a weapon rather than some puny rapier.
