The Shade Kusarigama is a craftable, non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It throws scythes attached by chains that can travel about 29 tiles before returning to the player. They hit and latch onto enemies when returning, stunning them, and will stay latched for 5 seconds before disconnecting.

Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.

  • Kusarigama are traditional Japanese weapons consisting of a sickle and counterweight connected by a chain.
    • This weapon's stunning effect is based on how traditional kusarigama were primarily used; swinging the chain to entangle enemies' limbs or weapons.
