The Lava Flail is a Melee weapon. It is introduced in one of the early updates of the game of Pixel Gun 3D.


This weapon has a yellow and orange striped handle, which goes along the "lava" theme. A smaller attachment is completely yellow. A small silver piece of metal is on top of this attachment, and a black chain hangs from this piece of metal. A large red and yellow "lava cactus" is attached to the chain.


It can output massive damage in a single hit, but at the cost of very slow attack speed and mediocre mobility.


  • It can be inaccurate in some occasions, but should be used at a fixed range in order to deal decent damage.
  • This weapon shouldn't be used for its mobility too often.
  • This weapon can nearly kill players who have full armor with a single headshot.


  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Users can't run very fast with this, making escape very easy.
  • The slow attack speed can easily be avoided.

As it has high mobility, you can combine it with less-mobile weapons, such as the Circus Cannon.


Lava flail

The Lava Flail in use.

  • Before the version 8.2.1 came out, this weapon was the second and last upgrade of the Cactus Flail.
  • It has an unusually long range for a melee weapon.
  • It is based off a flail, but the metal is replaced with lava.
  • It may be a reference to the Sun Fury, a flail weapon from the game Terraria that has a lava theme.
  • This melee weapon is one of the only weapons that can't hit in the closest ranges.
  • It has the one of the slowest attack rate out of all the melee weapons.
  • In the 11.2.2 update, it was given the Burning attribute.
  • As of the 12.5.0 update, it was removed from the Lucky Chest.
  • When you swing the flail, it takes a second after the swing to hit the foe. This could be a bug.
