The Ball O' Hurt is a type of flail that is obtainable by smashing a Shadow Orb with a hammer, or by looting a Corrupt Crate that is obtained by fishing in the Corruption. It also emits small particles similar to those of other objects in the Corruption.

It is particularly useful when fighting worm-type enemies or the Eater of Worlds boss, since it does relatively constant damage to the multiple segments once you fire it.

Like any other flail, you can hold down the mouse button to flail it around your character, damaging nearby enemies with minimal knockback. If mouse is released during this action, the flail will be thrown. If the mouse button is pressed while flail is mid-air, it will drop to the ground.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

Ball O' Hurt in action. Note that as of 1.4, the behavior of flails has been changed.
