Lost Your Sword in Stardew Valley?

There are a few different reasons why you might lose your sword in Stardew Valley: trashing it by accident, dying in the Mines, etc. Once you lose your sword, it feels like the whole game is just “broken” because you don’t have your best weapon anymore.

That’s why many players are wondering if you can recover a lost sword in Stardew Valley. Well, the answer is “depends”.

You might get lucky and find another sword in the mines or while fishing. However, it might not be such a good idea to go there without a sword! Unless you really need some Prismatic Jelly! Your best choice would be to use your axe, pickaxe, or ever a scythe. In all fairness, many players are choosing the scythe as their alternate weapon due to the fact that it doesn’t use energy.

You might want to also check the Lost and Found box in Lewis‘ house, but it’s hard to say for sure whether you will get it back.

That’s why we have another suggestion for you below.
