Urchin Stingers are Pre-Hardmode rogue weapons dropped by Sea Urchins and Aquatic Urchins. It fires an urchin spike which pierces once, and travels a short distance before being affected by gravity. On hit it inflicts the Poisoned debuff.

Performing a stealth strike with Urchin Stingers will cause the next stinger thrown to stick onto an enemy for 10 seconds. Whilst the stinger is stuck onto an enemy, it occasionally releases bubbles in random directions which float upwards.

The Urchin Stinger cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.
