  • This item is useful when trying to achieve precise movement while not accidentally shooting off in a direction undesirably, such as when building or during bullet hell fights like Supreme Witch, Calamitas.


  • In previous versions of the mod, the ability to dash with certain accessories was tied to the visibility of that accessory, where the dash was enabled if visibility was on and disabled if visibility was off. The Ball and Chain replaced this system due to players complaining about their characters' desired appearance being affected.


These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
  • Can now be crafted with Lead Bars.
