The Gold Knuckleduster is an early game combo fist weapon with a combo cost of 5. It is an upgrade of the Iron Knuckleduster, and the alternate version of the Platinum Knuckleduster, with slightly decreased damage and knockback. The Platinum Knuckleduster also has a different Right Click ability, allowing one to fire a spirit energy projectile as opposed to firing an empowered strike. The Gold Knuckleduster sells for 8 fewer silver coins.

The empowered strike deals around 500% more damage, along with added knockback.

Its best Modifier is Legendary, with a size modifier being replaced with a combo cost reduction. However, due to added knockback, it can be hard to keep enemies close to the player. Because of this, Demonic or even Ruthless modifiers may be considered for alternative modifiers. Modifiers like Large and Massive may also be considered by those who only care about combo cost, as they reduce the combo cost by -12% and -18% respectively, while Legendary only reduces the combo by -10%. However, this is the only upside to these modifiers, so they are not typically noted as the best.
