The most challenging part of obtaining the Beam Sword in Terraria is its stringent drop rate: there is a mere 0.67% chance of getting a Beam Sword from a defeated Armored Skeleton. 

This means you must defeat around 150 Armored Skeletons in Terraria to obtain the Beam Sword. That will cost you not only a hefty amount of resources but also a lot of time. 

But if you really need the Beam Sword in Terraria, you have to grind the Armored Skeleton mobs, as there is no alternate way of obtaining the said weapon at the moment.
