The Chain Guillotines attacking Target Dummies.

The Chain Guillotines are a Hardmode autoswinging flail that fires two blade projectiles attached to chains in rapid succession, with a maximum range of 22 tiles. It can also pierce multiple enemies when standing inside them or very close, therefore being a lot more effective at close quarters. The Chain Guillotines have a 1/5 (20%) chance of being dropped by Corrupt Mimics.

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


  • If riding a fast mount, such as the Pirate Ship Mount or the Unicorn Mount, while firing in front of the player, it will cause a large number of guillotines to be thrown.
  • The Chain Guillotines are quite effective against The Twins since their movement pattern can set up easy hits for this weapon.


  • The weapon can be considered to be the Hardmode upgrade to the Chain Knife, sharing similar characteristics and a similar design.
  • The name of the weapon is a reference to the guillotine, an apparatus designed to carry out executions by beheading.
