The Platinum 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 Gold Knuckleduster, with slightly increased damage and knockback. The Gold Knuckleduster also has a different Right Click ability, allowing one to fire an empowered strike as opposed to unleashing spirit energy. The Gold Knuckleduster sells for 6 fewer silver coins.

The sprit energy deals 2 hits, one with normal damage and one with around 200% more damage.

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.
