The Nasty Cholla is a craftable consumable Pre-Hardmode spiky ball. It throws a gravity affected cactus ball that explodes into three to four cactus needles after landing, each dealing 50% of the ball's damage. The cactus ball will stick to all blocks and enemies. Unlike most weapons, the Nasty Cholla can damage Town NPCs.

Performing a stealth strike with Nasty Chollas will cause four cactus balls to be thrown instead of one. Spikes from the stealth strike deal 35% of the weapon's damage.

The Nasty Cholla cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.
