The Ball O' Hurt attacking Target Dummies.

The Ball O' Hurt is a type of flail that is obtainable by destroying a Shadow Orb, or by looting a Corrupt Crate that is obtained by fishing in the Corruption. It emits small particles similar to those of other objects in the Corruption.

It is particularly useful when fighting worm-type enemies or the Eater of Worlds boss, since it does relatively constant damage to the multiple segments.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.


  • The Crimson flail counterpart of the Ball O' Hurt is the Meatball. However, it is crafted rather than looted. Its Crimson Heart melee weapon counterpart is The Rotted Fork.
  • A rather humorous modifier for this weapon is Hurtful, making it the "Hurtful Ball O' Hurt".
