The Chain Knife is a rare drop from cave bats. It deals 11 melee damage with a fast attack rate and very weak knockback. It appears to be a spearhead on a chain. Although being a flail, it acts very much like a boomerang, as it is not affected by gravity. It moves straight out and straight back to the player.

Trivia

  • This is likely a reference to Scorpion's main weapon of choice from the Mortal Kombat franchise.
  • This weapon is very similar to the Chain Guillotines, which has two blades, rather than one.

Notes

  • It is one of the few flails that can not be thrown through Doors.
  • The Chain Knife used to drop from Chaos Elementals due to a typo in the code, it was instead supposed to drop the Rod of Discord (Fixed as of 1.2.0.3)
  • Just like the Depth Meter, the Chain knife also drops from cave bats spawned by Bat Statues.

Update Info

v1.2.0.3
