Chum are consumable Hardmode throwing weapons that can autofire. They are sold by the Diverman after defeating the Wall of Flesh. When the projectiles hit a target, they will summon a shark that will rise from below and deal constant damage to the target, and other enemies that are grouped close by.
- These weapons are highly recommended as they have high single-target damage and are easy to acquire, being available as soon as the player enters Hardmode.
- If enemies are grouped closely to each other, they will all be damaged by the shark, making it useful against segmented enemies such as The Destroyer.
- Decreased damage from 34 to 26 and shark hit rate.
- Increased use time from 18 to 20 and velocity from 8 to 12.
- Sprite updated.
