The Chain Knife in action against a Target Dummy.

The Chain Knife is a melee weapon that throws a Knife-like 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 or Demonic. Both modifiers increase its average damage output by the same amount.

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.
  • A Bat Statue can be used to easily farm bats to obtain 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike most flails, this flail will not spin around the player, but instead attack the target directly before returning to the player.
