The Drippler Crippler in use.

The Drippler Crippler is a Hardmode flail which, in addition to the usual flail mechanics, fires a thorny ball projectile from the flail's head upon being thrown, which deals 50% of the weapon's base damage (73 damage). Thorny ball projectiles are heavily affected by gravity and dissipate after ricocheting off solid blocks twice or upon piercing two enemies. The Drippler Crippler has a 1/8 (12.5%) chance of being dropped by the Blood Eel.

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


  • This weapon has an exceptionally high base damage for an early-Hardmode weapon, making this flail incredibly useful even up to mid-Hardmode.
  • Like all flails, the Drippler Crippler is especially effective at clearing out crowds of enemies or damaging enemies with large hitboxes.

The six segments of the chain.
  • The pattern on the chain is always the same and consists of six segments before repeating.
  • The ball projectile of the Drippler Crippler resembles its namesake, the Drippler, with the addition of bony spurs to act as the flail's spikes.
  • Although its name might suggest it, it does not do bonus damage against Dripplers. That said, Dripplers have only 50 life and 14 defense; with any damage bonus at all, even the half damage of a "spin" attack will kill a Drippler in Classic Mode in one hit.
  • The Drippler Crippler is one of three flails that fire additional projectiles, the others being the Flower Pow and the Flairon. Out of these, the Drippler Crippler is the only one that lacks any kind of auto-targeting, but it can be obtained the earliest.
