The Chain Knife in action against a Target Dummy.

The Chain Knife is a melee weapon that fires a projectile attached to a chain, similar to Flails, but the attack button cannot be held to wield it continuously. It only extends a short distance of 12 tiles, though its quick use time and velocity may make it a good early to mid-game weapon. It has a 0.4% (1 in 250) chance of being dropped by a Cave Bat.

Its best Modifier is Godly.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is good at killing quick flying monsters. It is also good at killing large groups of Wall Creepers, and keeping the second form of the Brain of Cthulhu at bay.
  • If you have a Bat Statue, you can easily farm bats until you get the Chain Knife.
  • Although this item is able to knock back enemies quite a distance, it is very difficult to stunlock enemies with this weapon. This is due to the slow use time.
