Thrown Weapons are weapons thrown by the player to hit monsters a long distance away. The Thorn Chakram and Light Disc have the unique property that they can ricochet off of surfaces until they hit an enemy or their range limit, all other thrown weapons do not ricochet.

There are also piercing thrown weapons, which will travel through enemies instead of ricocheting, making them useful for fighting large groups of enemies or larger enemies such as the Eye of Cthulhu as they can hit them multiple times while passing through them.
