How to Use the Drill Mount

Using the Drill Containment Unit will summon the Drill Mount, a mount that can fly indefinitely. It’s got decent speed, but it’s not the fastest mount in the whole game. Its main feature is that it comes equipped with mining lasers!

You can aim the lasers just like any normal weapon and attack to fire them. The Drill Mount’s mining lasers can mine every single block in the game, and it also mines background furniture. Unfortunately, this means that you can’t use weapons while riding the Drill Mount, so be careful.
